Ultimate Dot-to-Dot Extreme Puzzle Challenges: Part 1

Talking about crazy (last post), how about something totally different from me!  But...when you stop to think about it, you know it it totally up my alley, which is the crazy, fun part of it.

A couple years ago an English friend of mine from our Shutterchance photoblog told me about a dot-to-dot book she thought I'd enjoy.  BINGO.  Since then, I have purchased 3 different books, all with designs of +/- 1000 dots.  I'm such a glutton.

The last book I bought is the Ultimate Dot-to-Dot Extreme Puzzle Challenges, using colored sections of dot-to-dots...a new challenge in the dot-to-dot sphere for me.

As you can see from the cover, you're also able to color the drawings once done,
which I didn't do...but I would use thicker pens the next time.

And yes, between 28 February and 2 July of this year, I drew all 30 designs.
Today I will post the first 15 in the book, followed by the rest next week.

Each design is 10 x 14.5 inches (23 x 38 cm),
too large for my scanner, so please forgive the poor quality of my photos.

Only one color!

You can't say I didn't warn you!

No titles/explanations/descriptions were given to any of the designs.

However, you do get a cheat-sheet at the end of the book.
And now you know what I'll be posting next week....


  1. I watched you doing these 'dot-to-dot' drawings and it always amazed me how fast they were done. It is fun to see that from all those numbers a recognizable picture will appear. I know this is fun to you and you do this very well. I am glad you made this into 2 posts so that a 'bigger' audience can enjoy them... I don't think it is poor quality at all.... IHVJ.

    1. Each design took about an hour, which is fast compared to my coloring. HA! And yes, you're always the one who sees me having fun with these projects. Thanks for supporting my bliss so freely. :)

  2. It looks fascinating. I don't know if I'd have the patience but it looks like fun too. Look forward to the rest.

    1. I'm not exactly sure why, Marie, but patience is something I have for meticulous projects like this. I find them quite gratifying. Thank you.

  3. oh how cool!! I love the second design! Looking forward to the next batch!
