all right, I finally picked up a puzzle today but I'm not really happy with it, so I am going to see if I can find another one tomorrow, either way I will be sending out tomorrow. sorry for sending out on the last day! I worked a 16 hour shift yesterday (11am-3:30am) and then came back today for another 12 hour shift, so I needed a bit of sleep in between!

Hi all

My pieces have gone out for both of my groups today.

Some of you will be getting the remaining pieces from my original puzzle. I have also started a 2nd puzzle this round - the pieces were much smaller, so I have joined together 4 or 5 pieces to create larger pieces.

I have added a note explaining the theme for each, but please feel free to contact me if you want any more info.

I am excited to receive your pieces and start work!

On the plus side: My puzzles arrived!

On the negative side: They're rubbish, and not at all what I thought I was ordering.  Angry Therefore, as I'm going to say in a PM I'm about to send to everyone in my groups, I'm going to be late sending. Stupid UK with rubbish craft supplies. Sometimes it's so hard to find something so simple!

I've only received pieces from one partner so far: MunLtStmpr. Her puzzle is sooo awesome, I'm really thinking out what I'm going to do with her pieces.  Smiley

I used very thin puzzle pieces but of fairly large size because I have a special thing I want to do to display it... I received two pieces of a puzzle that were much better quality and now I wonder if I should have stuck to my original used puzzle... Angry

I would say to use what you got and learn from it--no sense spending more money!

I have prepped my extra pieces but I do not want to work on them until I start getting them back!!

I haven't yet started on my pieces, mostly because of waiting for new eyeglasses to come in.  I've received all the pieces from Group 4 so it's going to be a fun week!

I don't think you can really go wrong with any puzzle for altering.  The end result is almost like a crazy quilt so nothing is ever really wrong and anything that might not be quite what you'd like, that piece gets mixed in with all the rest.

I have received four packages of puzzles!! Good thing hubby is going out of town this weekend, because I plan on holding up in my room and playing with puzzles!!

thanks for the encouragement MunLtStmpr!  I was looking for more of an inchies collage effect so that is why I picked a smaller puzzle size...I can't wait to see what I get--I am sure it is going to be a great happy surprise!

**Organizer Note:  Today was the send out date for your blank puzzle pieces, so if I haven't heard that you've sent or that you will be sending late by tomorrow morning you'll be receiving a PM from me to see what's up.  The gallery status updates are all current from PM's I've received as of this evening, so if your status is incorrect please PM me so that I can fix it.  Again, I'd like to remind everyone to PM me along with your partners when you send and receive your pieces so that I can keep track of everything.

Back to my regular crafty self, I've received pieces from five of my seven partners and started looking through all my stuff.  I've got ideas!
