Spooky Halloween – Nautilus

Finished the “Spooky Halloween” puzzle by Nautilus. Art by Finchley Paper Arts / HVC Licensing Group (was this AI-generated, I wonder?). Nautilus doesn’t specify the cut designer.

Cavallini Arboretum

Enjoyably challenging, requiring real focus on details of tree textures, variation of color, etc. Cavallini has few wrong connections, which I appreciate. Second time I’ve had Cavallini pieces still connected & then tore the paper off one of the tabs while disconnecting. )-8 And, I really wish the original captions had been in English rather […]
