YBC Puzzle Challenge 2015Monday night we had the big reveal of the Yellow Breeches Chapter of the PA Guild of Craftsmen’s 2015 Puzzle Challenge. It was a diverse array of pieces in wood, metal, fabric, beads, paper, glass, and a wide variety of mixed media. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
