ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST.


With the tele being so dire, the jigsaws are really coming into their own.
I really do advise anyone who wants to relax and eat up spare time to try them.
I find myself humming and suddenly realise that I'm actually relaxed, nothing else seems to do this for me.
Get yourself a bit of hardboard and have a go.


Here's the latest.  A bit tricky this one and it took a bit longer than usual but lovely I think you'll agree.
Now to find another from the cupboard.


Here's the other one being worked on over the other side of the room by my jigsaw partner, lol

  1. I've got a lovely Halloween puzzle going. Its a wonderful way to relax. My problem is I'd rather do the jigsaw rather than my chore. Hence, I'm waaayyyy behind on my "to do" list.

  2. I love the cat puzzle best of all. so pretty after you finished it. it is good it relaxes you and gives you something to do. I agree about the TV being dire... my personality is such that a puzzle makes me crazy, as do cross word puzzles, sewing, quilting, crochet.. if I tried to put that puzzle together it would end up thrown on the floor in pieces. games make me crazy to, like board games or card games. it makes life hard because those are all fun things to while away time

  4. I'm glad they relax you, you can have them ALL! lol I'd be crazy after about five minutes :)

    I do love the one you did with the kitties in it, though, especially the little orange fellow hanging over the edge of the bag of compost.

    1. We visit car boot sales all summer and buy them there, we never pay more than £2.00 for a puzzle.

  8. I'd never done a 1000 piece jigsaw until earlier this year, but as I got into it my brain started to break it down into smaller and smaller areas so I could recognise areas of colour. Over a few days it became increasingly relaxing. Arilx

    1. A lot of people say that the could not do it and it would drive them mad but once you get into them you're hooked, lol

  9. How do you manage to do these without the cats playing football with the pieces?
    Crochet hooks, marking pens, cotton reels, my glasses.... anything will do, especially when they see me intent on doing something, they feel duty-bound to offer a bit of distraction and get a whole lot of attention! If that tactic doesn't work, they just settle on the work in question. Using a sewing machine with a cat roosting in the material is not easy! Ironing is no better.... Hairy devils! xx

    1. They all know now not to tread on the board whie we are working, we've gently shoved them off enough times. When we are finished we stack them on top of each other with another plain piece of hardboard on top.

  10. Now our weather has cooled, I think the jig saws will come out again. Last time back in the UK I bought hubby a real stinker of a puzzle based on the A-Z! that should keep him entertained! Love your cat one xcx

    1. We like the Wasgij puzzles, the picture you make is different from the one on the box.
