A few random statements for you today, since (as is unfortunately often the case) I cannot think of anything else to post.
Firstly... big announcement!
We have finished another 1000 piece puzzle!!!
*bows, and waits for clapping to die away*
Seriously though, it was quite a big undertaking. The puzzle was given to Sophie for her 13th birthday this year. We started it a month of two ago and then (sadly) one of the younger children smashed it. So we put it away for a while, then a week ago brought it out again and started over. This time, we managed to finish it without (too many) major breakages.
This is what it looks like. It's a picture of a ski slope with lots of things happening!
Now a lot more is done. :-) Yay! Almost finished!
I sadly do not have any more photos of the puzzle. :-( I do have them taken, but they haven't been uploaded to the computer yet. I will post them when they are on the computer.
A random statement to suit a random post. :-) It pretty much speaks for itself!
Today we went to woodwork. We have been doing woodwork for quite a wee while now. When you start off you are in the junior class, making a set project. That is, everyone makes the same thing. Then you get moved up into the Advanced class, when you can make what you want!
I am in the Advanced class, and I am making a bedside cabinet with a drawer in it to go beside my bed and hold my alarm clock and torch. And of course, other things.
I contemplated making a secret drawer/compartment because that would have been awesome, but I decided against it because it would be rather hard to make! Any ideas for how to go about it next time?
I shall endeavour to post the pictures of the puzzle when I get around to it. Until then, farewell!
