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. 

The border was tricky because you can see the repetitive pattern that switches between 2 different shades which is also the background of the Eggs in Frames.

There were several sections to this image so I broke them down like this;

  • The border/background
  • The colored frames around the eggs
  • The colored inside of each of the eggs framed
  • The colors for each of the eggs
  • The colors for the stands for each of the eggs

Then I proceeded to build each one like mini-puzzles. Once the frames around the eggs were done I slid the sections into place within the outside border.

This is the type of puzzle that has that 'addicting' effect - by that I mean, it goes slow for a spell and then suddenly several pieces just appear into place...slow again and then several more are easily placed. So it gives a nice combination of challenge and pleasure.

The pieces are of great quality which is a real factor for jigsaw puzzlers. It makes the puzzling experience so much more delightful when a section can be built in one area of the board and lifted carefully to another section without falling apart.


This was the very first jigsaw puzzle I was asked to review back in 2015 and Anie's very first off her brand new production line. One never knows how a new product will be presented but this one is on the high end and I highly recommend it.
