I first saw this jigsaw puzzle about a month ago when I was looking for Chinese New Year cards. I was tempted to buy but wasn’t sure if I had a frame of the correct measurement. I kept thinking about it until I decided to go back to buy it last week after making sure of the measurements. A good thing I did because it was the last one left.
Like the previous two puzzles, the beginning was the hardest:
This alone took me five-and-a-half hours, of which half the time was used to fit the border.
After 7 hours on another day, I managed to see a semblance of the orchestra and the audience in the gallery.
Two-and-a-half hours on the first day of CNY lead to the completion of the puzzle. How lovely!
