Ouch-exquisite misery! I like my puzzles to be hard but this set a new standard! Who kicked over the fire ant mound? This was a really tough puzzle -- early on I started questioning how the three rosettes were going to fit together, as well as what I was going to do with all those edge pieces. Eventually I think I have everything put together, but the pattern is so busy and the differences in interlocks so subtle that it was truly a matter of trial and error to see which of the similar pieces fit where. Now I want to know who decided it was fair to make a triple layer cake out of my kaleidoscope -- at least that is the only way I can figure to put the separate sections together. When the light comes in just right I hope I'll be able to find the interacting silhouettes, etc.
