Jigsaw puzzles

    I love jigsaw puzzles. However I found my concentration wandered somewhere and I struggle with anything bigger than 1000 pieces. That’s okay because I don’t like to leave a puzzle until it is finished. My daughter and I have often stayed up until 3am with ‘just one more piece then I will go to bed’ being our promise that never got carried through. If it is just me I will do a 500 piece because that way I can finish it before midnight if I start early enough.

    Well done you two

    They both look NASTY!  I just don't have the patience these days!   Can't do crosswords either!

    I do it mostly just to keep my arm moving and the lymphodema out. It's been really good!

    Glad to see there are other puzzle junkies out there. I find myself getting to the Lifehouse early for treatments so I can spend bit of time on the puzzle that’s normally sitting in the day therapy area. It’s such a good idea and takes your mind off things while waiting for treatment

    In my adult years, my Mum often had a card table with a jigsaw on the go.  It's something we have done with the kids for years - they often got a jigsaw for Christmas or birthday presents gradually getting more difficult and more pieces.  Sadly, mostly sent to childish things, now.  Always good to get quality jigsaws.

    Jigsaws are wonderful, gets your hands moving and gives you something else to concentrate on. I sew which also gets fingers hands moving, keep forgetting to put my sleeve on 🙄 so today it’s on @Brenda5 had my lymphoderm for about 28 months now 😃

    Hot weather sets my lymphodema off. That and the fact that I have put on quite a few kg's that don't really need to be there.
