  1. I do love a jigsaw. Was this one a Christmas gift? Looks fun to do.

    • Cathy says:

      It was a requested gift – Anna of Green Tapestry introduced me to this series of jigsaws and I treat myself to doing one a year in the post-Christmas period. This is my 4th

      • What a lovely annual treat. I had a long period of convalescence a few years ago and really enjoyed doing the Ken Duncan Inspiration Series of Sunflowers, Lavender fields and lakes – very relaxing – it helped to clear my mind, reboot and recharge.

        • Cathy says:

          Younger Daughter was a fornight late and I was told to rest otherwise ‘she’ would be on the small side – I did lots of jigsaws (from the library, I think) back then, but had forgotten about it till I read your comment. This time round I would do a few pieces at a time throughout the day but yes, convalescing would be the ideal opportunity

          • A friend and I take little mini-breaks together a couple of times a year and she always takes a charity shop bought jigsaw for both of us both to do togehter and then she takes it back to the charity shop.

    Snap, I did this one last year. A total waste of time, but strangely addictive.

  3. That is a fabulous jigsaw…..

  4. sultanabun says:

    I think I REALLY need to do a jigsaw now!

  5. Lisa at Greenbow says:

    What a colorful encouraging pass time for this time of year.

  6. Heyjude says:

    Great jigsaw. I used to love doing Christmas jigsaws with my children ‘back in the day’ – it would stay on the dining table for days and every time you passed by you just had to find a piece to fit πŸ™‚ Thanks for bringing back happy memories πŸ™‚

    • Cathy says:

      This is now my 4th year of doing a jigsaw in the post Christmas period and my strategies are getting better – the Golfer does them all the time (but not jigsaws I would care to do) and is very methodical, but that’s just not me πŸ˜‰

      • I always start in teh middle with a prominent feature and work my way out – it drives some people MAD! as they prefer to start with the edges.

        • Cathy says:

          Well, yes, but surely that’s the sensible thing to do, Sandra…?! πŸ˜‰ The son of a friend of mine used to start with the bottom edge and work up to the top, row by row, which I have never seen before or since. The Poppet is a real whizz at jigsaws and could put a piece in the right way from the start without turning it round and round like children usually do when they first try jigsaws πŸ™‚

  7. tonytomeo says:

    Oh, I did not know it was a jigsaw puzzle. It thought it was a mural on stucco.

  8. Cathy a beautiful and big puzzle. I have no patience for them, although as a child I did. Greetings from Margarita.

    • Cathy says:

      I used to do them a lot as a child too, but then not again till very recently. It was this particular series of jigsaws that tempted me because I liked the detail in them

  9. I love jigsaws! And for some strange reason, more so at this time of year! I’ve even got an app for that! πŸ˜‰πŸ™‚

  10. LisaDay says:

    I love Ravensburger – puzzles and games. How long did that take?

    • Cathy says:

      Perhaps about 10 days, off and on. It is the puzzles by Colin Thompson that really appeal to me – and there are plenty more in this series that I haven’t done yet

  11. Kris P says:

    That had to be a tough one!

    • Cathy says:

      Perhaps not as hard as the Bizarre Bookshop ones that are in the same series but the detail makes it challenging -in an enjoyable sort of way though

  12. Anna says:

    Aaaaaaagh – it’s come back to haunt me Cathy! πŸ™‚ I do like the way you usually come across one or two familiar characters in each of his jigsaws. We finished our seasonal puzzle a couple of days ago after a frantic search for one last missing piece which had fallen into my shopping bag. There’s one more in the pipeline this year for these winter days.

  13. I love doing puzzles! This one is gorgeous.

  14. I haven’t done a jigsaw for a few years now, that looks a good one

    • Cathy says:

      I hadn’t either until Anna of Green Tapestry showed another one in this series (Bizarre Bookshop) and it realy appealed to me – it has since become a once a year treat πŸ˜‰
