Second and Third Quarter Jigsaws

These were two from the same series Kit lent me a while back.  Even though they were all grey and the pieces were the same shape, you could tell which way up they went from the shape so they weren't too hard.

This was another one of Kit's - a pretty photomosaic of a butterfly.  Was somewhat challenging, but not as hard as the dolphin one I have.

And another one of Kit's - scenes from around Africa.  I've been to a couple of them.  Not too difficult due to having a number of smaller pictures.

This is the other "World's Most Difficult" jigsaw that I have (the other one was pigs).  I actually did these puzzles completely differently.  The pigs one I picked up a piece, found where it went and put it in.  Then had to flip whole sections of the puzzle over and ninety degrees.  With this one I found all the pairs of pieces and lined them up with their correct orientation (you could even tell from from back by the clarity of the printing).  This was a lot more work to sort the pieces, but a lot quicker to do the puzzle.

This is the Opera House jigsaw that Mum gave me for my birthday.  These are the sails, ready to be assembled.

And this is it completed.  It's pretty cool.

On the Sunday morning that David was up before my birthday, we did these two small jigsaws.

This was a second hand jigsaw I got for my birthday.  Can you see anything wrong with this picture?

ok so it's hard to tell, but there's three baggies (one split).  Labelled top left, bottom left, top right.  So I knew going in that the jigsaw wouldn't be complete.  But I did it anyway, because with the sections being split up, it was like doing three 250 piece jigsaws.

Because with all the grey, doing the whole thing would have taken a lot longer..

And finally, a magnetic jigsaw of New Zealand that F got me from New Zealand.  Only 100 pieces so quite easy, but sadly the front of our fridge is not magnetic, so couldn't do it there!

I’m tying to get a grasp of how you’re describing that puzzle where you’re pairing up pieces and flipping and turning... whaaaa???

The picture is the same on both sides - but at a 90 degree turn. Effectively this means that the puzzle is flipped on a diagonal. The last picture shows me turning up the bottom right corner, which you can see matches the top left corner..
