Fourth Quarter Jigsaws

This was a fun one that came second hand from somewhere, possibly from the club cleanout, or from David.  There were a couple of pieces missing sadly.

Sydney jigsaw

Another from either the club cleanout or David, of Kinderdijk in the Netherlands.  I saw a bunch of windmills when I was there in 2012, but not sure which ones.  I did see that little tower on the very right.  I did most of this jigsaw myself, then we finished the sky when Dave and Kat were up in October.

Kinderdijk jigsaw

We started this the Saturday morning David and Kat were here, then they went off to River Island.  Given the waste of a weekend I had at home, I shoulda gone with them.  We finished it Sunday afternoon.

Fully Monty jigsaw

I got this from Kmart for $2 because I had a $10 voucher and had spent $8 on five pairs of socks and needed to spend the rest on something.  A fun little jigsaw I think I did in about an hour.

Chalk box jigsaw

This jigsaw we started in Southampton on the Queen Mary 2.  Did it in a couple of days.

Comic Jigsaw - Crazy Golf

This second comic jigsaw came straight after the one above on the port side of the ship.  Did this in two days.

Comic Jigsaw - Farm Visit

I truly hate people.  I hate evil disgusting people.  One morning after finishing the comic jigsaw above, we started this jigsaw of Polperro and got the sky and the boats and water done.  Later I came back to it and someone had put their hands on both sides of the jigsaw and pushed the whole lot together, destroying it.  I just walked away, I couldn't face redoing it all.  Then we had our shore day in New York.  Came back to it the next day and someone had restored it to about where I'd left it.  So I finished it.  Later I walked past and someone had pulled out all the dark bits of the water.  I mean seriously what the F#$* is wrong with people??  Some dude was putting it in and I showed him the photo of the finished jigsaw from just that morning.  I let him finish it.  The next day it had started all over again.  Le sigh.

Polperro jigsaw

I don't actually know what this is, as I didn't get a photo of the box (edit: it's Two Sisters (On the Terrace) (1881), by Renoir).  This was started in Southampton as well on the starboard side of the ship, and this was the progress after three days.  I didn't do much of it at all by this stage, just a couple of pieces.  It was pretty tough going, very dark and not much definition on the pieces.  Really didn't like it at all.

Art jigsaw

This was the progress by Christmas day.  I'd done a bit more on it, and I'd sorted all the pieces by shape, and partly by colour as someone else had sorted by colour.

Art jigsaw

And did I mention how much I HATE PEOPLE??  Look at what some feral turd of a human being did to it!

Art jigsaw

I'd originally thought with a bit of persistence we could get it done by the time we got off in New York, but I couldn't face it after this.  I actually considered boxing it all up and telling them to throw it out (there were pieces missing anyway) and put out a new one.  But I just walked away.

This had been going on the port side of the ship during our Caribbean days, so was just about finished when I saw it.  I helped with all the greenery at the top and we finished it before lunch on New Years Eve (technically New Years Day in Australia haha)
