Making a start on my large made-by-hubby puzzle board. It was only just large enough for this 2000 piecer. I usually do 1000 piecers just because they are a more convenient size for me to work with. However, now that I know it fits the 2000 piecers...there is another Cobble Hill on my wish list. (Four Seasons)...just sayin'...
Finding the edge pieces, or at least most of them, took a while and I will probably store them separately for next time.
Making progress...and look! I found Nemo!
Looking good, even if the sunlight is making a glare on the left. Sunlight is much sought after in my neck of the woods this time of year, so no complaints from me!
All done and just look at these details!
What a joy to discover this little seahorse at the bottom of the image...put a smile on my face.
There is a seam, if you go looking for it, where the 2 sides of the puzzle join. Quoting from the Cobble Hill website : 'Please note that 2000 piece puzzles are two identical cuts of 1000 piece puzzles, but flipped in reverse. While normally, no two pieces are alike in our puzzles, the 2000 piece puzzles are an exception at this time.'
Scarcely noticeable in the final piece though.
And yes, a bit of puzzle dust. It does not bother me, but if it is something you dislike, giving the pieces a good sifting in a sieve or colander, will take care of that. I think it's a bit like builder's dust. It's brand new, so of course there will be dust!
Over all, I am a big Cobble Hill fan. I have a good collection of their puzzles, but this puzzle was not provided for review purposes, this is an honest opinion and I gladly give them an 'Excellent' rating!
I like the thickness of the pieces and how well they fit together and I like the neutral grey colour of the cardboard. The matt linen finish with a slight texture feels luxurious and the colours are vibrant. I like that there is a poster included, showing the bit of the image hidden behind the logo on the top of the nice strong, good quality box.
The partial image on the side of the box helps me find the puzzle I'm looking for easily, when these are stacked on a shelf.
