I gave up on a jigsaw because it was boring me to tears. Which brings me to another jigsaw point. What the jigsaw image is. This was mainly water and sky. I just lost interest. You want to enjoy what you are doing. Piece that all look the same are not exciting. Even the colours were dull. Only paid a few euro for it in a charity shop. I now know why the original owner gave it away. It could be done. That was not the problem. I had more than half of it finished. I was just bored with it because everything about the image was boring. Had all the sea done. That was all one colour. Doing them in no problem. But the odd one or two you simply lose interest in. Come the end of it, it would have been a tiny village off to the left and the rest sea and sky and cliffs. Had to stop before I dropped into a coma. LOL
Do you ever try digital jigsaws?
I like hidden object games which are like the where’s Waldo books.
Working on a harbour one at the moment. Boats and people and the likes. Standard type jigsaw. Though the sky will be a bit tricky. Rest of it is easy enough. Lot of patterns to follow. Once you have that in a jigsaw it does make it easier. Hardest part of the one above was the trees. Left with a lot of green and you have to make sense of it.
Latest jigsaw. The Giant's Causeway. it was said to have build by Fionn Mac Cumhaill, when a Scottish giant, Benandonner, threatened to invade Ireland. Fionn threw the columns into the sea to create a pathway to Scotland, were he defeated Benandonner. Sits is County Antrim in the North of Ireland
