I’ve only done three MasterPieces puzzles before, and those were all much better quality than this one. Unfortunately, the fit wasn’t very good. It was mushy, not as bad as Sunsout at its worst, but the same kind of bad fit. This was a very recent acquisition, and I noticed that the price was lower than for the previous MasterPieces puzzles I bought. I would rather have the better quality and the higher price.
So, I started out a bit grumpy because of the bad cut, but I have to say this image was so much fun that I still enjoyed myself enormously. I especially liked all the signs on the wall 🙂
On an unrelated note, I found the lost piece from Monaco Classics. It was in the fridge. Yes, in the fridge. I think I know how it happened: there was a box of clementintes in the fridge, and I took it out for a while and put it down on the table where the puzzle was. When I put the box back in, there must have been a piece stuck to the bottom.
This is part of the Master Pieces Inside Out-series, where we are shown the inside and outside of various buildings, in this case a brewery. This was great fun!
I like Master Pieces puzzles, they have great images, but unfortunately, they aren’t often available in Europe, or if they are, they can be quite expensive. Not this time, though, I got this during a sale 🙂
Vintage travel collage with one piece missing (bottom edge). I don’t have many MasterPieces puzzles, this is the second with the wrong number of pieces – one puzzle had an extra piece. In this case, I’m fairly confident that the piece wasn’t there to begin with because I noticed it was missing early on. It’s an edge piece, and especially the blue is pretty distinctive. Otherwise, it’s a great puzzle!
I usually puzzle alone, but I had some help from friends with this one.
