Cat Library Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

As you can see in the image to the right, the pieces seem to be in piles of dark colors, maybe seven different tones. Fear not though as it is not as bad as it appears....

Take a look at the Cat Library puzzle poster below. It is nice and clear and gives you many little details to help set up sections of assembled puzzle sections which well eventually join together. I can only imagine how much fun it was to put this image together AND how long it would have taken - HA!

The Cat Library Puzzle Poster

 I sampled the use of the Grateful House puzzle mats with the Cat Library puzzle. Below is a nice example of the border assembled on the thick flat surface of the mat.

Showing on this work-in-progress, you can see the 'clumps' of sections I started with first and as usual, I picked out the most outstanding colors on the books and then did the cats.

As I eventually completed all the cats on the Cat Library puzzle, I lined up all the wood-shelf pieces and matched them up with the books. I found the dark vintage books, mostly in the brownish colors to be the trickiest of all.

The images below show the adorable cats and some of the cat related book titles.

Once I completed this most delightful puzzle image, I took a photo of each cat as they are SO adorable which made this puzzle such a joy to assemble. Cobble Hill Puzzle Company sure made a winner with The Cat Library puzzle.
