puzzle 33:  Sleeping Beauty

piece count: 34

measured size: 6 1/2” x 7”

date cut: 21 January 09

notables: signature piece

disposition: Julia

This is Julia’s first puzzle NOT cut in in strip cut style.  I used the same style pieces I would cut for an adult puzzle, just bigger.  I thought she would have some trouble adjusting from more square, orthogonal pieces to the random shapes but I was wrong.  Like normal.  She was thrilled to have a meeple.

The odd cutout at the top (also seen in Puzzle 31) is me cutting around hanger hole in the calendar.  I could have just trimmed across the top to remove it cleanly, but then Walt’s name (and the tiara) would have been cut in half.
