Fun Stuff: July 2019 Archives

Haven't done a lot of jigsaws this quarter.  Been too busy trying to sort out Lego so I can get it out of the house.  That, and most of the puzzles I have to do are 1500 plus pieces, which stay out for a long time and get quite distracting.  The smaller ones I can knock over and get done and out of the house a lot quicker.

David selected this one from my to-do pile when he came up in April (he'd brought it up on a previous occasion).  1500 pieces and we did it in a couple of days.  It's of a cute little town, Ramsau, in Germany.  When I went trying to find it (so I can go there one day ;) ) I found a live webcam setup in this exact spot.  I watched it for a while and there was a constant stream of people having their photos taken on the bridge :)

I left it out for a while then, because I'm trying to declutter and wanted to give the jigsaw away, I pulled out the parts that David had mostly done, so that I could do them myself, so that I felt like I'd actually *done* the jigsaw before I gave it away :)

Even Stumpy came out to help :)

Ramsau jigsaw

This was a jigsaw I bought new from Kmart for a few dollars (I think).  David, Kat, Kit and I (I think) did it back in 2016.  I thought I'd do it again myself so that I could give it away.

Hot air balloon jigsaw

This one Kore gave to me when she came to visit in late 2011, and it had been sitting unopened downstairs ever since.  So it was good to finally do it.

Winsor Manor jigsaw

This one Lachie started and promptly gave up on.  He brought it in for me to do, and I couldn't resist starting it there and then.  Took quite a while to do at work (because I simply don't have the time; the best progresses I made on it were after work hours, and also I can't sort the pieces the way I would at home because people come along and mess them up).  But it was really nice to have a jigsaw nearby to do - great for when you need a brain break to just do it for a couple of minutes.
