Yes mani mani , that is exactly my type of image for a puzzle. Wonderful. Who is the maker? I am finishing up and will post one in the next week or so that you might like.
Ravensburger.. 'Midnight at the Library' :)

Have you done Ravensburger Greatest Show in Earth? It’s sort of set up on shelves and is one of my favorite puzzles.

Midnight at the Library arrives on Wednesday. Because it looks to be such a fun puzzle I really should wait and make it my first snowstorm puzzle but I may not be able to wait.

Very funny.. and cute. It would be done very quickly, but then sometimes that's a good thing. :)
Probably a little harder than it first appears, especially if you don’t look at the picture . The words would go fast but all those chickens would take longer because they are so similar or identical.

I'm in assisted living and they just set up a puzzle here a few weeks ago right outside my room.. I started getting into it but someone here keeps putting it in disarray. I was just out there a minute ago it was all torn apart and the pieces were all piled up. I decided that was the end for me. If I find out I have to stay here (and it looks like I am) I'm going to get me a table and do puzzles in my room. The people here have different stages of dementia but some of them are pretty good at putting the puzzle together and I'm sure it is good for them. There is one cute little lady that enjoys working on them and she is really good at it. I would hate to see one person ruin it for everybody.

I loved doing puzzles when I was a kid. There was a neighbor that had a room behind their garage and it was their puzzle room. They had a table inside and they had shelves full of puzzles. We always had something to do on a rainy day.

When I moved into my house I brought a puzzle to work on. But I had 8 cats at the time and I knew sweet little Muffy would make it her own. I never got a chance to do the puzzle.

A friend of mine is in assisted living. She just got one of those sloping jigsaw tables that grip the pieces and you can sit in front of them. Easier on the back and doesn't take up a whole table. If you're that keen, muffy muffy that may not be a bad idea. Doing jigsaws with others is great fun, but not people are going to be so disruptive. I've found them a good way to spend time with friends as there's no need to talk unless you want to.. Doing some form of art with friends is another way. Just sitting talking isn't my thing.

Hmmm... I dunno ... maybe that big beautiful black blob in the middle. :catman:

Oh, how frustrating, muffy muffy , for you and the other people there who enjoy working on the puzzles. Getting one of your own, is probably the best idea. 🤗

A friend who likes to do them with me came around near the end, looked at me and said 'thanks a lot'.....
