Sandy's Puzzle Collection - The Tables
September 20, 2003
Back to the first page.
Organizing all these items was very difficult. No matter what system I choose, there is always some doubt about where to draw the lines. Very few items fit perfectly in one place without their absense being felt some other place. As a result of this, the organizing and reorganizing is still ongoing... and may always be.
