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 images above, the piles were basically 4. Border pieces, blue-grey building pieces, letters and the rest. I figured that would be the simplest strategy.

I wrestled with the border, more so the left side as the building pattern is the same on both sides and then there is a section on the left side with very similar pieces. I did finally get it though :) The jigsaw puzzle also comes with a super nice poster that is plenty big enough to see even the smallest details....that is much appreciated indeed!

I had 4 steps for this one. Build the border, build the Cobble Hill Flower Shop sign, build the frame of the building and then the flowers would find their positions. It did flow exactly like that as you can see steps 1-3 completed below.

The following will share some close up images. You can see the 2 ladies and one man inside the flower shop. It's kinda difficult to see the 2nd lady standing beside the man on the right side. The dog was a nice touch on the outside of the building. There's hoards of different flowers in there.  I was impressed that the letters were not tricky as sometimes text can be. Turns out that the cut pieces and the swirly patterns around the letters really simplified that section. 

Comments...

The Cobble Hills Puzzle Company has several Barbara Behr jigsaw puzzle images which I have done a few myself. This was quite the delightful puzzle experience with the building giving just enough of a challenge and the different flowers assisted in assembling because of their patterns.....I find same color/pattern flowers to be more testy. Overall a super fun one!!!
