It looks like cool wrapping paper.

Love this! If you cut it down into smaller pieces, it can be even more interesting!  :)

What a great idea, @Erica McPhee
I've made this into a jigsaw puzzle, and have kept the pieces square to allow for easier cutting of the pieces. So, if you want to put the pieces back into their original places, print this scan (on 8 1/2 x 11 inch, or A4 paper works well), cut out the pieces (leaving no orange background), and reassemble the puzzle into its original form (in the first post of this thread. If anyone is up to the challenge, I'll reward you with five excellent nibs, sent anywhere in the world.

I might mention, the original is 5 x 4 inches, hence the recommendation to print it larger--easier to cut and arrange the pieces. Also, I resisted the temptation to make it a 500 piece puzzle--that would really be a mindbender. Given that it has only 80 pieces, and a number of those are very distinctive, it shouldn't be too hard.

Given Mary's suggestion, I might try printing it and making envelopes out of it (the pieces version with the orange). Might be interesting.

Well done, @TeresaS
So nice of you to participate.

You have your choice of 5 nibs from my favorites collection:

Spencerian #1 (England)
Gillott 303 (Vintage)
Esterbrook 357

or if you wish, some other nib I might have that you like (I also have many broad pen nibs).

Let me know your choice via reply to this post or via pm, and if your address is different than the State Route 18 address you used in the Beacon of light exchange.

Please note:  The challenge is still open--anyone else like to try it? The prize is the same.

Ooooo!  I’m really not familiar with any of them, so surprise me!  I am sure they all are wonderful.  I am still at the same address.  Thanks for doing this…something to do on a cold winter day in January while my husband watched football!
