Yes, I like to do the odd one or two especially in the Winter. I usually get one for Christmas. ;-) I have a few of the Thomas K*nkade snowy scenes. On the whole I think some of the pictures available could be nicer.........not into the baked bean variety!

I have started to do some of the free online ones where you can pick a picture, the shape and number of pieces. There is a timer as well.

I like to go upstairs watch telly and do the current jigsaw on the bed early evening if I can I'm sure it calms me down after a full days work. I had so many jigsaws in the cupboard I wanted to do them, leave them completed, stack them in the drawer under the bed, and make more space. Of course I was'nt meant to buy more but yes I do. I sometimes buy jigsaws from charity shops if I like them and pass them on.

Yes they are so restful aren't they Brenda. I can get quite absorbed for ages!

I have recently started a 3000 piece Tuscan Courtyard so I may go missing for long hours.

I have recently done Dragon´s Revenge which is a 3 in 1 jigsaw which I have framed and Dragon Crystal which I haven´t framed yet because I can´t find a frame to fit.

There is something so restful about doing a jigsaw ..as I sit here I can see my 3000 outside and itch to get to it is there but the light is wrong .
