Assembly.....

I did not do my usual sorting routine with this one. I sorted the colors as best I could into piles then did an additional color sort as I laid all the pieces out onto the foam board. The border went together really well.

I sensed this one was going to be a bit of a trickster due to the darkish colors but the beauty of the image was irresistible so that triggered the challenge knowing the reward of completion would be worth it. Being 500 pieces also made it acceptable. 

As you can see in the image below, I started with the lightest colors and the most distinctest patterns on the balls. The reds/greens were kinda tricky especially the reds/greens with patterns. But the darkness behind the balls were fairly testy. 

I love an image that shares the twinkle of Christmas and clearly this one has captured that essence as you can see in these close up photos below. The photography enhancement of this image is impeccable. Super well done job on the Christmas Balls jigsaw puzzle by Cobble Hill Puzzle Company

Comments

I picked this one for review when it came out in early 2018 knowing I would be saving it for this Christmas. I knew it was going to be testy and I was correct.

This image is known as a T.O.P. which means 'Truly Original Photo' in house at Cobble Hill Puzzle Company. They have produced many of their own images for jigsaw puzzles.

So this image also comes in 1000 pieces IF you are brave enough to take it on. I have seen it assembled last Christmas and it is magnificent.  Click the image to the right for the 1000 piece Christmas Balls jigsaw puzzle.
