Jigsaw Puzzle Update

***

It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned the jigsaw puzzles we work, and we are still going strong on completing them. Here’s how it’s been going.

I believe all these can be enlarged by clicking the photo.

***

We just finished this one today. It took a long time, as all those sunflowers were pretty hard to do. There were so many yellow and yellow/orange pieces!

***

This one was pretty cool. It was a glow in the dark one, and the middle photo shows it actually glowing.

 

***

This one was fun to do. The hardest part was the rug.

***

This one was interesting. It was fun to work, but kind of hard. At first we thought the picture and the puzzle pieces just didn’t match up, but in the end it did. There was a little booklet, with a story of a murder mystery, and after working the puzzle we were to find out who did it.

***

This one was fun, and not too awfully hard to work. Lots of kitty cuteness!

***

Here’s some more cat puzzles. I can’t remember in which order we did these. Seems we’ve bought so many puzzles featuring cats!

    

***

Here’s one that’s not about cats. It has toys and games from a long time ago. It was fun to see some that we had when we were kids.

***

I liked this one a lot, because it was all about spooky things of Halloween!

***

This one is the newest one, which we started today. So far, so good. I’ve already got most of the outside border done.

***

So, that’s pretty much up to date, if I didn’t forget one. Hope you enjoyed looking! 🙂

JIGSAW JUMBLE

Standard

JIGSAW JUMBLE

We’ve worked a few more jigsaw puzzles since I last wrote about them. Last time we were just starting the Springbok puzzle that had old gas station items. We finished it pretty fast. Then, we did another one that had what looked like an old general store, for fishing supplies. That was fun.

 

We also worked a couple of “White Mountain” brand puzzles, of 1,000 pieces each. One was called, “Old Candy Store”, and the other was, “Antique Toys”. They were both fun to do. It seems to take us a week or less to work them, from start to finish.

   

Next, we worked one that was 750 pieces. It was from, “Master Pieces”, “Once Upon a Shelf”, and called, “Treasured History”.

Here’s the photo of the finished puzzle, which we completed just today. There was one piece missing! I don’t know if we just accidentally lost it, or it wasn’t in the box, even though it was a brand new puzzle.

To me, this one was harder to work than the 1,000 piece puzzles. It could have been because the picture was so full of things that they just seemed a big jumble of colored puzzle pieces. I could pick out some of the detailed parts, but the background was so crazy looking. My husband is very good at finding patterns, and details, though, so between us we got it done. The box for this one was smaller, so the picture was smaller, and for me, was hard to see the things on there. I had to take lots of breaks, because of eye strain!

It was an interesting one, though, with all kinds of museum artifacts to find, sort of like a hidden object game. We finished it in 6 days.

Here’s a big jumble of puzzle pieces. At first it’s a mess, so I have to turn every piece over to the printed picture, then find the outside pieces. This takes awhile. Finally we’re ready to fit the pieces together. 🙂

We are without one to work on this evening! No! I know tomorrow we will go find another one to buy, and get started on.

Until next time…happy puzzling! 🙂

Time for another set of questions from Cee, and answers from me! Join in the fun, and see other entries, by clicking the above link. 🙂

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? 

I’ve been lucky enough to have done pretty much whatever I’ve wanted to do. Anything else I’ve wanted to do, but haven’t, is just because I’m not motivated enough or have the skills, to learn how to do it, or stick with it long enough. I jump from one thing to another, never getting anything finished.

How often do you get a haircut?

Almost never. I trim the top and bangs myself once in awhile. It’s been many years since I had it cut at a shop.

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?

I like all kinds of these except any numbers ones. Numbers and I don’t get along. Right now I’m into doing the jigsaw puzzles. I seem to get onto one kind, and do that for a long time, then go to another kind. Many crosswords have been done, as have word search. All kinds of ‘pencil puzzles’ are fun.

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

Well, I was having to write them all down, and here’s what I remember from all the years:

  • Lubbock TX – 6 addresses
  • Lawton  OK – 4
  • Clarksville TX – 2
  • Paris TX – 1
  • Greenville TX – 1
  • Beeville TX – 1
  • Sinton TX – 1
  • Ft. Hood TX – 1
  • Levelland TX – 2
  • Junction City KS – 1
  • Sagamihara Japan – 3
  • Furth/Nuremburg Germany – 1

JIGSAW PUZZLE UPDATE

JIGSAW PUZZLE UPDATE

Awhile back I posted a photo of a jigsaw puzzle I completed. Since then I’ve finished three more. They are fun to do, but takes several days for me to work them. Here’s the latest ones:

Sugar Skull

This one took the longest – it was pretty difficult! There is a piece missing. It was a brand new puzzle, though, so I may have just lost the piece somewhere.

Furry Friends

This one was easier, but had some trouble spots, mostly the shaggy dog parts, and even the cat! I liked the picture of cute animals.

 

This last one I finished today. It says it’s a Kodak Decades puzzle depicting the 40s.

It was fairly easy, as it had a lot of things to identify on there, like the written letter.

I’ll be starting a new one later today! 🙂
