I have a couple of the Kincade ones Ann, one I haven't done yet. I usually ask for one at Christmas as it makes a change from doing the usual things and is very relaxing. This year it was a 1000 piece large Robin on a snowy Holly twig. :-D I am still doing it and have it on a piece of hardboard.

well this has reminded me now - I have a lovely Thomas Kincade one to do - shall dig it out!!

Often had jigsaw puzzles as Christms presents when I was a child.
Got a lovely one (of cats) a couple of years ago. Have done it more than once.
Have got another one this time. Haven't done it yet.
It is os seven wonders of the world (but not the ones I knew about).
Looking forward to doing it..... and finding out more about the seven places featured.

We started with a couple of jigsaws again over Christmas and its got us hooked. Finished Pieter Bruegel's Hunters in the Snow which we lovedd and started on a railway station one which I bought for a £1 from a charity shop which has OH enthralled!

I use grey board from art shops as a base for making prints and found a whole sheet makes a good base for puzzles. It costs about £2.50 and a sheet takes a 1000 piece puzzle. I store it in another room when we aren't using it. but I suppose on a table you could cover it with a tablecloth.

I have loads of old puzzles, they were in my garage when I sorted it out last year.

Used to love doing them and got o.h. doing some too but don't seem to have time now and nowhere to leave it up and ready. My o.h. can get large sheets of corrugated cardboard from work with a smooth side so could do the puzzle on one of those and push it under the sofa I suppose. Maybe I will give it a go, will sort one out when I go to my storage area.



Bobtanian Report 12 Jan 2013 08:57


there is a picture on the box which is,
for example ,a fairground/fete with maybe surprised looking persons/audience in it............

.however the picture in the puzzle, is what the surprised/audience people are seeing

could we start a jigsaw puzzle thread? I find them fascinating and we could all do the same one and compare where pieces go if you see what I mean

My sister got a Porta-Puzzle for less than £1 in a boot sale.

I keep Mum's old one at our caravan and slide it under the settee there if the puzzle isn't finished in one visit.

This online site allows you to change the cut if you want more of a challenge or you can just choose the normal ones.



ChrisofWessex Report 11 Jan 2013 12:57

The JigRoll is very handy - just roll up so table is still in use.


Treehunter Report 10 Jan 2013 23:52

Thank you Anne and AG cant afford to buy one. Have looked out for them at boot sale and charity shops but not had any luck. Will still keep looking for one.



Jean Report 10 Jan 2013 23:39

glad others like doing a jigsaw. will visit the charity shop, will keep me occupied untill the light nights return.


AnninGlos Report 10 Jan 2013 12:28

Yes that was the one I meant Hazel but, unless you do a lot of puzzles, and with my card making I don't have the time for another hobby, the porta puzzle is not cheap.
