Jigsaw Puzzle in Progress

 A very good friend of mine from Texas sent me a 2,000-piece  jigsaw puzzle.  Ms. Burrito immediately  opened it  when  she saw it in the box.  I wasn't really going to start it yet as I know once I start I won't be able to stop until it's done.  But she insisted so I let her started it.
The setting of the picture is a  stone ground corn meal, with railroad and train on the background.  I will reveal if there is a yardmaster on this  setting.
 We use our dining table to   do it as it is pretty big.  These were taken   a couple of days ago  and we made big progress.  I would say that we are 85% done.  My problem would be to find a  big frame  for this one.  I might ask  hubby to make me one if I can't find it in the store.

Update:  We finished it already.
Link  with me every Friday through Color Connection.  You can post any color that you like.  Just click the badge below  to link up.

I try to work jigsaw puzzles from time to time because they are supposed to be helpful in avoiding alzheimers disease. There are also specially designed ones for people already suffering from dementia that help stimulate the brain. Carver, ABC Wed-team

Hi Carver, that's a very interesting information. Thanks for sharing it, maybe I could avoid having that disease since I love working on puzzles.

The young girl in the first photo looks like she knows there's a lot of pieces to put together ahead of her!

It's a lovely puzzle design though.
