Picking up the pieces

I have always enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and since coming here, there is always one if not two on the go.
MSM then wraps and secures them in cellophane for charity so that buyers can see how big the end result is as well as know that all the pieces are present.

Years ago, Hubby and I did a couple of 1000 piece WASGIJs which we found amusing and challenging to complete. They are still quite popular but also expensive to buy. We framed ours but when we sold the cottage, dismantled them and put them in separate plastic bags as we no longer had the boxes. They found their way to charity, and no doubt with no picture to work from, let alone the image being back to front to what was expected anyway, someone had some fun doing them.
I finished one puzzle a week or so ago and was dismayed to discover two pieces missing, one on the little girl’s knee in the centre and the other in the wall above the piano.
It was put back in the box and marked accordingly.
MSM brought one up from a stockpile for me to do, then felt a little embarrassed as to her choice due to the content. It didn’t worry me at all, and I finished it yesterday.

All the pieces were there and the hardest bits to do were the roof and walls flanking the two narrow boats. The sun caught the right side of it when I took my pictures today.
She has also left out two others, and I’m debating which one to do next as they are very different.

I just need to find another board I can work on!

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
