Puzzle solved!

Several weeks ago I posted about a jigsaw puzzle that Rina built - right to the last piece, which was missing. I took photos of the box, the puzzle made up of 1499 pieces and e-mailed them to the book club where I'd bought it. I've been a member of this particular book club for two decades and knew they would put things right. 

Two weeks ago a parcel arrived by snail mail: it was a complete puzzle. Rina just had to find the piece, after which I'd parcel up the puzzle (this one now containing 1499 pieces LOL!) and send it back to the book club. 

Rina sat near a sunny window with a tray on her lap.
 Within half an hour she'd found the errant piece...the one on the right! 
Finally, the puzzle is completed! 

Because Rina almost single-handedly built this puzzle (I remember building some of the gazebo roof), we said she should hang it in her bedroom. Grant built the frame, we all slid the puzzle onto the Masonite backing, and Grant finished the product. 
It suits the space above her bed
Another masterpiece 

To end this post, here's a video of Skabenga enjoying the warm paving bricks on our patio yesterday morning. If you listen carefully, you can hear grandchildren playing in the garden next door! 

Here's wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
