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. 

For some reason I did not get a photo of the pieces laid out on the foam boards. I know I was really excited to start this one so I was likely distracted at the time!!!

The snow along the bottom and the dark sky across the top were a little tricky. Snow patches and black starry skies usually are. I had singled out the Merry Christmas text which was then done first on the board followed by the Christmas tree, red fence, reindeer, dog and other greenery. From there I worked all the lighter color areas in the rooms, placing them into position on the board. Eventually the lower roof and front doorway were completed. After that, all the rooms were completed until I was down to the starry sky and white snow. Those 2 areas took the longest time with the sky being the longer of the two as it extended the puzzling time for this puzzle to about 12 hours. However, I have had a lot bigger sections of dark sky and snow on different images but this one was not a negative at all!
