This puzzle delighted me in every way. The only complaint I have ever had about your puzzles is that the fun is over too soon so I recently made the decision to work all your puzzles without referring to the picture. This puzzle required 3 days of intermittent attention. The exquisite detail visible in each piece, the quirky perspective or lack of perspective, the unique cut and triangle patterning in the overall puzzle design all served to slow me down. The edge was quite tricky. There are a couple of interchangeable pieces in the top border which caused much confusion near the end. I had to take the border apart, scramble the pieces and hope for the best. The second go was successful. I never did figure out where the hangup was so it will be interesting to re-work this one. I must say that for those of us who love to work slow your hard puzzles are true treasures. I work each puzzle 2 or 3 times in a month before lending it out to my puzzle hungry family.
