Third Quarter Jigsaws

| | Comments (0)

This jigsaw was a birthday present from Tony H.  It's actually two separate jigsaws and then a whole stack of little plastic buildings you shove into the top foam layer.  The jigsaw itself is pretty tricky because there's a lot of buildings that all look alike.  But then I figured out there was a method to the madness and was able to sort the pieces based on their shape, and reduced selection of pieces to a quarter of the whole thing and did it in columns.  The plastic buildings were mostly easy enough to identify, but towards the end they all started to look alike.  Then I discovered the buildings were numbered on the bottom with tiny numbers.  When I finished I discovered the instructions said to use the tiny numbers to identify the buildings.  Oops.. rtfm next time..!

This was one I borrowed from work of Linderhof Palace.  All that green was a bit icky, but I cheated when I realised there were two halves to the jigsaw that were identical, so I put the top half on the bottom half and finished the trees relatively quickly.

This was a set of five jigsaws I got at K-Mart for $8, which was exactly the same series as one I got from Vinnies a while back - which was more like $10 and had two jigsaws out of the five missing - fail!  I had bought it for myself for Christmas, but got talked into opening it at work, so we did the five of them over December.  They were all fun, but the one of the dolphins was missing four pieces.  We checked the bag and it hadn't been sealed properly.  The missing pieces weren't in the box either, so they must have been dropped on the floor of a factory in China somewhere..

Having finished the other five, I brought in another fun one for them to do in the run-up to Christmas.  Except we finished it in two days.
