My race to puzzlePALOOZA
I am a last minute girl.
I hate it.
My puzzle piece has stared at me in my studio while I worked on various projects, suffering from the knowledge that it was not my first priority.
Until this week.
This coming Saturday, July 11th, the Vermont Arts Council is having a big, fat party at Battery Park on the Burlington waterfront – puzzlePALOOZA.
There are a couple of things about the event that hold particular interest for me:
- The Arts Council is hoping to set the Guinness Record for the World’s Largest Puzzle.
- There’s a parade with representatives from all 251 Vermont towns to carry puzzle pieces on the ½ mile route down Main Street.
I want to be in a parade. I want to be part of a Guinness Record.
I have needs.
So here I am, with 4 days to finish my puzzle piece. I can do this, right?
Here’s the piece as I received it:
Each morning, I’ll take a picture of my piece to show you my progress. I will tell you that I’m working on a cheese theme – the puzzle piece looked like Swiss and I like cheese, okay? I’m still trying to figure out if I can work in something book-ish.
My Dremel (Stan) and I have spent a chunk of time together today. I sure did miss him.
Stay tuned for my race to the finish.
