The puzzle is finished!

07 Aug

After four months and hundreds of hours, the puzzle has finally come to an end. It’s a bittersweet ending for me because although I love to the see the puzzle finished, its hard to see the project come to an end. I have enjoyed every minute of this experience and I hope you did as well! Autism is something that has effected friends, family, and members of my community, so choosing to raise awareness for Autism made the most sense to me.

I cannot express how thankful I am for all of the support that I received in the last four months. The contributions have come in many different forms: many of you have shared the link to my website with friends and family, some have printed off fliers and placed them around town and at work, and others have donated towards the cause, even if it was just $1. All of the contributions have motivated me to challenge myself and to complete the puzzle.

Also, please help us find a home for the puzzle! Send any ideas to

Enjoy the video (and be sure to share it with your friends, family, and on Facebook)! Thanks again for everything! And remember Every Piece Counts!

      Today I was talking to a fb friend from Wales. We have never met. He lives with and looks after his grandmother.
      She has Alzheimer’s. my grandfather had it too. The topic was basically about human frustration. (Presently I’m learning to deal with arthritis in my hands. I am a landscape gardener, artist, and once very avid jigsaw puzzler ~ it was actually the turning of pieces one winter that twigged me to an odd feeling at the base of my thumb.)
      I think jigsaw puzzles offer up some much more than idle entertainment, for loners and shut ins.
      An idea came to me about making a puzzle whereby all the pieces were the same shape and therefore always fit could be a very rewarding accomplishment to someone who troubles with day to day knowledge and memory. Colour could be blended. Images surreal or abstract. The actual board could be a combination of paintings by patients.
      I was so very impressed by your commitment to Autism.
      Sometimes there is a piece missing.
      But it’s always good to still see the hole/whole picture.
      Well done.
