Assembly

I did not do my usual sorting with this one due to it being a Family Puzzle. In a Family jigsaw puzzle the pieces are in roughly 3 different sizes so I sorted 4 piles. Small, medium, large and border pieces.

The border was fairly easy with all the pieces being extra large. My plan for this one was to work the most obvious Mitten colors starting with the 2 green pairs, then brown pairs, then cream colored pairs, snowflakes, Reindeers and Santa faces.

The red checkered pair of mittens was the toughest area and also the one with the majority of smaller pieces as was the strings.

Comments...

The extra shiny finish on the Woolly Mittens jigsaw puzzle made it tricky to get good photos without the glare. With the pieces being so large some tend to curl slightly from use (one hopes) but they are firm. The pieces do not lay flat and were cut loose, again one hopes from use. Being a Hallmark brand, the box is of extremely high quality being very firm.

In this case the price was 50 cents due to the Christmas clearance of 75% off at the Thrift Store making it difficult to resist. It certainly qualifies for recommendation as a Family puzzle because of the variety of piece sizes and the image is attractive. I am pleased all the pieces are available which is always like a little bonus.

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
