A very curious puzzle, and other news

For the first time in my life I saw a jigsaw puzzle that had all pieces but could not be finished for completely objective reasons. The two remaining pieces fit together, but they don't fit in with the rest!

It might have something to do with the fact I snatched this particular puzzle on last clothes exchange. Either the previous owner lost the two original pieces and substituted them with similar two from a different puzzle, or it ended up in the exchange because the producer inexplicably managed to make the puzzle that way.
I think I'm keeping this puzzle anyway. As a curio, if nothing else. (Actually, it's a very pretty landscape.)

In other news: My mom's dress is no longer in such a hurry. She happened across a good formal dress on sale. She still wants me to make that dress, but there's no deadline now.

Aaand: Spring has arrived. The same old news are usually the best, aren't they?


  1. ha! I love the puzzle pictures/incident! I'm always so sad when I find out that the puzzle I'm putting together has a/several missing piece(s).

  2. It's frustrating, isn't it?
    Fortunately, I think I've only experienced that with someone else's puzzles and all the puzzles we have are whole. This was the first instance... and so weird that the initial frustration was overcome by curiosity and amusement!
