I love the rich colours on this Peace On Earth Jigsaw Puzzle (Amazon Link) and the fact that I can see the quality cut of the random shaped pieces. One thing I know for sure - I would love to have that wreath on my door and it would likely be on the inside so I could enjoy it. Since that is not doable, the actual puzzle itself makes for perfect Christmas decor too!

I did my usual sorting routine.
The border was fairly doable. I thought it best to start with the least of colors which was quite outstanding and that was the blue birds, followed by the light yellow door frame.
Then I patched up the baskets and fruits but not the berries.
I decided to go with the bow and sachet on the door handle next. Once they were in place I worked the wreath while lining up the fruits. After that I focused on the red and white berries which were quite tricky. The background was left until last.
I have to admit, this one went quite well considering the solid colours and berries. But what is most impressive is the image itself. Take a close look below at the artist's immaculate work. I am so impressed with Richard Cowdrey's painting style as he pays attention to perfection and accuracy.
Also it should be mentioned the way Cobble Hill ensures the image will be printed to the ultimate enhancement of the image giving a terrific puzzling experience - great job there!
This was one of the new images for 2018 but I was especially delighted to have the opportunity to assemble and review it before Christmas this year. Many thanks to Cobble Hill Puzzle Company.
