Rex Ray’s “Alistair”, from Liberty

2/19: Finished! Super landscape! 1:2.5 ratio or so. Also, lots of Liberty-style human figural dancers, and musicians. Liberty: 2/17: Under way! “Alistair” by Rex Ray, Liberty Puzzles, about 550 pieces, via Hoefnagel. I love Rex Ray, so I was excited to request this puzzle from Hoefnagel, but now (having just started), I am feeling daunted!

Basis Wood “Evolution”

A second puzzle from “Basis Wood” in Ukraine, via the Hoefnagel Puzzle Club.

Rex Ray “Mylopronesta”

Rex Ray, “Mylopronesta” – 1000 pieces, Pomegranate Finished March 9, 2023. Gorgeous, and a real pleasure to look at closely while assembling it. Fairly easy, with the distinct colors — similar colors and shapes had to be sorted out, but there were so many unique colors and shape combinations that it wasn’t hard. The chains […]
