    That’s a really lovely puzzle. My mums being doing jigsaws in lockdown and I want to send her some new ones. I haven’t seen any as pretty as yours.

  2. beth says:

    (Six word comment 😏)

  4. Joanne Sisco says:

    It took me a second to realize this was in fact a puzzle and not a tapestry. Very pretty!

  5. lolaWi says:

    lovely puzzle! 🙂

  6. That’s a pretty puzzle! It looks like it took some time to do too.

  7. Mz&Cho says:

    Awesome! Doing one myself of Mont St. Michel in France. Getting there slowly but surely. MZ

  8. Cee Neuner says:

    I adore this puzzle and your caption 😀

    I’d want to frame and hang it afterwards 🙂 🙂

    Troubling times indeed, but you are putting it to beautiful use!

    • I borrowed some puzzles from my mom today. I gave away most of ours before we moved, as I was just getting to the point of feeling as if we had way too much stuff and puzzles take up quite a lot of space. Should keep me going for awhile. 🙂

    I always liked puzzles (yours is lovely!) – but I hated that they took over the table and I was forced to abandon them or abandon home comforts (eating with the family for example). These days I do puzzles electronically. It’s usually the last thing I do when I’m in bed on my tablet. Reading is dangerous because even if I am very tired I will keep reading and miss out on necessary sleep but can stop anytime with an e-puzzle.

    • I’ve never tried e-puzzles. I’m afraid I might be the same way as I am and you are with reading…just one more chapter, just one more… In our new house, our dining room is big enough that we have both extra leaves in the table, so it’s nice and long. I’m just using one end for puzzles and we have a table in the kitchen for everyday eating. No one over for dinner these days. 😦

  13. Wow! What a fabulous puzzle! How long did it take you????
    Hope you are all doing well. We have been keeping an eye on Arizona as my sister is in Phoenix. It is a mad mad time!

    • I don’t know exactly. I worked on it off and on for 3 or 4 days maybe.

      We are doing well, thankfully, taking precautions and wearing masks whenever we’re in close proximity to people (in all stores.) Not thrilled about the spike but people here didn’t seem to take it very seriously for some time, which is now having consequences. I don’t wear one when I walk, but I’m not walking with anyone or getting close to anyone else. You stay well, too.

      • Ah! you leave your puzzle out and do it a little at a time!

        Just read that AZ has issued a new shutdown order. I know my sister will be relieved as she feels as you do that not everyone seems to take it very seriously.

        Hang in there.

      • Lots more people are wearing masks now, but when I was in the grocery store today, there were a few not wearing them. Much better at least.

  14. My hubby’s been doing puzzles forever. Now, it’s all the rage.
    I guess that’s a good thing. We need to go back to simple things.
    This is a beautiful one, Janet. I hope you decide to frame it.
    Be safe … Be Healthy … Be Happy 😍

    • I won’t be framing it, Issy. It’s already back in the box, I’ve worked another one (even harder) and put that back in the box, and the table’s clear for my next one. I borrowed 6 or 7 from Mom the other day, so I’m all set for now. 🙂 Puzzles are good for the brain, so we can call them exercise, too.

      • My hubby takes them apart too. I can never look. I know how much time can go into it. I don’t do them. Hubby buys – well not now since we’re isoltaing – at good will. They have new ones and very inexpensive. We’ve gotten some used one at our library but some have missing pieces. Grrr
        I knit. It strains my brain enough. LOL
        I challenge myself with patterns with stitches I don’t know how to do then curse my curiosity to challenge myself. Have a wonderful Tuesday ~~~ : – )

      • Knitting works, too. I just don’t know how to knit and don’t have the desire to learn. I need to work on learning how to be a better photographer and I want to get back to making handmade cards with an Oriental flavor. Those will have to wait until August, though, as I’ll be going to Wyoming in mid-July.

      • Knitting does require a rhythm.
        One never gets bored if there’s something to look forward to. I love anything oriental.
        👍 😍 😎

  15. Gorgeous lady locked together during lockdown. 🙂

  16. Resa says:

    What a beauty! I haven’t done a puzzle in years, but then again I have my Art Gowns keeping me uber busy. Love this shot!

    • I think you have enough going on to keep your artistic side busy. I do enjoy doing puzzles, so it’s nice to have a place to do them without interfering with anything else.

      • Resa says:

        I understand. I miss doing crossword puzzles.

      • I do one of those most mornings after I read my devotions and do my little Duolingo French lesson. The puzzles aren’t particularly difficult, but it’s great mind exercise and once in awhile there’s word I haven’t heard/seen or didn’t know it could be used in that way.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
