I’m back on the horse after taking most of the summer off from puzzle cutting.  Actually, this is the second puzzle I started after my self imposed hiatus; the first one didn’t start off the way I envisioned, so I tabled it.  Maybe I’ll return to it later.


This puzzle employes a very angular style last seen in Puzzle 31.  Once I got back into the groove, it was a lot of fun to cut.  I was able to make the pieces very narrow with little fear of “messing up”.  It’s the most confident scrolling I’ve done in a while.
