Setbacks

After scanning two more bags of 60 pieces, it occurred to me that the scans are mirror images of the actual placement on the platen. This means that I MAY have numbered 120 pieces backwards. (The piece on the top left corner of the platen was 1, but the piece on the top left corner of the scan was 6.) Catastrophe? Probably not. It just means that I will have to either renumber them at some point, or use the actual pieces when solving the puzzle. CRIMINAL!

To date, I have input about 175 pieces. Anna was right; it takes forever. It is a tedious task for someone who gave up accounting because the details pained me. I learned early in my career that I hate tying balances and loose decimal points and here I am trying to categorize puzzle pieces, for fun.

And I am not a good planner. Although I confidently input pink choices as light, bright and rose, some pieces required magenta or coral; this could make for some mismatching when it comes time to actually place pieces. And all of those hats are not green. Some are olive and some are forest green. I only gave green, as a choice.

But there were advancements, as well.

I officially placed two pieces into the puzzle. So for the naysayers, I have touched the puzzle!

I also began inputting the puzzle’s details. My next post will detail the number of cat hats and glasses. 🙂

Wow.. the setbacks outweighed the advancements, but I haven’t given up yet, so life is good. Meow
