Harry Potter 1000 Piece Puzzle - COVID Christmas Break - December 2020

 When we started this whole global pandemic thing back in Spring, puzzles had a moment.  Everybody was bound to their own home and it seemed liked everyone was doing puzzles.  Here's what Google Trends has in terms of data to show the surge in interest in puzzles this Spring:

We tried to do one back then, but failed.  Just never got out of the starting block.  I think it had to do with the location of the puzzle.  We had it set up in our dining room - which is like a ghost town.  But, in recent weeks, I put up our little card table out on the screened porch and put a 300 piece family-friendly Christmas puzzle on it.  Guess what?  Seven or eight days after I started it, we finished it.  Because, it was in a room where we all were hanging out.  

So, today is Sunday the 13th of December.  I'm working the rest of this week and a little bit next week.  But, then we'll have some time together as a family.  And, because of that, Nat scored us a new puzzle.  Except this time it is 1000 pieces.  But, for our family, it is SO on trend.  It is a Harry Potter collage puzzle:

I got started trying to put together the border.  Here's where we are after my first puzzle session.  Placed the four corners and found SOME of the border in place.   

Going to use the blog here to track my progress.  Stay tuned.  Or don't.  Doesn't matter to me.
