The table is almost full now.  I put out only a few hundred pieces at a time.  I have whatever the reverse of a repetition syndrome is-- after I have done something a few times, I can hardly bear to continue.  But there is no hurry.  I have a piece of green felt to wrap around what I am calling my "Pluck Board."  I will organize pieces on it before placing them in the puzzle, by color, and initially by the strait edges that denote a border piece.  So far I have found two corners. I may install some sort of weighted, snake-like things around the edges of the table to keep pieces from falling off. 

If a cat should....

Well, "the horror, the horror..."
