"So bright it makes you colourblind"

I've spent the last three nights working on my birthday puzzle.   It's finally done and I plan to go to bed early tonight to catch up on my sleep.

Here's how it all went down...

Late Monday night.  
After a four hour baseball game and tons of fun with friends, I sat down to start the puzzle.  
My plan of attack was to work from the outside in. 

Tuesday night.  
Up until 4am.  
Started piecing together the Detroit Tigers hat and kept it going from there.

Wednesday night.  
I was actually sweating last night.  
Got this far and collapsed into bed at 3am. 

Thursday afternoon at 6:30pm!  
Oh joy! 

I complain about the lack of sleep but I absolutely loved putting this puzzle together while listening to Prince on repeat. Thank you Aneez!

"There will come a time/ When love will blow your mind/And everything you'll look for you'll find
That will be the time/ That everything will shine/ So bright it makes you colorblind" 
(Diamonds and Pearls, Prince)
