A Year of Jigsaws

I though it might be interesting to look back at a particular favourite lockdown hobby for many – jigsaws. This has always been something I have done so in that respect it wasn’t anything new to me, but it did make getting hold of them in the last twelve months rather tricky. I do like a good quality jigsaw and Gibsons are probably my go to place, but some of the following do not come from there, in fact some have come from the street!

Lots has been written about how they are good for you and that even the Queen is known to participate in a jigsaw or two. They are a great timewaster, even as the light fades and it gets chillier I have been known to just find one more piece!

So enjoy this gallery of jigsaws that I have done, I know I am missing some pictures of the 500 piece ones that were part of a set of 4 but they will have been of a similar ilk to the other pictures. I tend to favour 1000 mainly because that is the biggest my jigsaw puzzle board fits and I am not blessed with a table of sorts to keep them on.

oooo those white pieces!
From the street – with pieces missing (circled) I eventually sold, yes sold this on despite the missing pieces!

On with the next 12 months of jigsaws, the perfect distraction from all sorts of things, not just pandemics!

  1. Time well spent. So addictive isn’t it? We have a very similar one to your third one down on our wall. We tend to frame one then swap maybe a couple of times a year as we do another so as not to waste all that work!

  2. Wow you have been busy. I bet that snowy one was difficult. I’m always reminded of the Laurel and Hardy film featuring a jigsaw puzzle, so true to life as they’re addictive.

I love hearing from you so please leave a reply.
