Jigsaw Season

jigsaw puzzle

Winter means jigsaw season for me, so between Christmas and New Year I cracked open this one of a vintage railway poster from the 1930s. I love these posters – and jigsaws, so for me it was a perfect combination. The puzzle has one thousand pieces and I think it must be the most difficult puzzle I/we’ve ever tackled.

After a couple of days I nearly gave up because I seemed to be almost at a standstill, but eventually we made some decent progress, it took almost a week to complete it though.

We have another couple of new puzzles to do over this winter. The masochist in me almost tidied this one away to start another one, but the sensible bit of me decided to leave it a wee while before starting another one.
