Fun Stuff: May 2018 Archives

Just for fun, here's a photo Dad took in Wellington, New Zealand in March/April 1975, followed by one from our trip there in April 2018.

Wellington 2018

Yeah I know it's nearly half way through the year and I could probably do a six month update heh.

David and I did this MC Escher jigsaw in early January when he came to visit.  It used to belong to Marylon back in the day.

I picked up this 3D Eiffel Tower jigsaw at Vinnies for $5.  It is pretty cool, but not really a challenge of a jigsaw.  All the pieces are numbered and you're meant to build it in numerical order, which is kinda boring.  I did sort the pieces into their groups of four and did the four identical sections at the same time.  Gave it to Noah cause he like Paris.

Another "World's Most Difficult" jigsaw that David found in an op-shop and he and I did together in January.

Another op-shop find of David's.  He did most of this when he came to visit in early February

Rustic Kitchen jigsaw

And one more op-shop find from David.  He did a bit more of this than me.  It's a picture of Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, but took a while in Google image search to find it, because the box labelled it something like "Paradise" which is hardly helpful.  I think I found it looking for pink mansion, or something like that.

This one I think I brought home from Mum and Dad's when we were clearing the place out.  Fairly large at 1500 pieces, I did it to have a break from the Disney behemoth.  It's of a castle and lake in Switzerland.

This I did out at the club, so took quite a long time to finish because opportunities to do it are fairly limited.  It's a painting "The Captain and the Mate" by James Jacques Joseph Tissot.

And another op-shop one from David.  This was a lot of fun, I might even keep it.  I finished this the same day Vic delivered a boot-load of Lego, so the table downstairs has been covered in Lego ever since.
