Mr. Z’s Sugar Maples

update: Finished! Whew. I will admit that I enjoyed the last third, which went quickly, the best. This puzzle (from Hoefnagel) is kicking my ass, a little, which I wasn’t quite expecting. Although maybe I should have, given the artwork! There’s some color line cutting, but I’m not sure that’s it — it’s the artwork […]
