Ive found my new little hobby/distraction. I love it. Currently doing a Lion king one. But my sister wont let me do it when i want because it takes up room and looks messy which is just rude & sad but yeah its in jigsaw case but still rude about it:(

anyway does anyone like these puzzles? Did you used to?

when i can ill send a picture of how far ive got with it so far. Its 1,000 peices so feels like takes forever and i blame the factory for losing some peices everytime i cant do it lolll

its quite theraputic when you find a peice that matches and starts building

    I remember when I was in primary school the library used to have 3D jigsaw puzzles you could take out, I remember taking one out that was like a tudor house or something and it was really difficult and toom me ages to put together right and when I was nearly finished... some of the pieces were missing!

    Ha if space is an issue for your sister the 3D ones usually take up less room (cos they like stack upwards instead of being flat) if that's something you'd be into. Can't recommend getting one from a library though 😂
    Ahah

     My sister just cares of the mess of the pieces when it's out but don't care about space of the Jude it self. Have a case for jigsaws. So leave in the case and lie it up right behind the sofa in hopes it stay s together which it nearly does


     here's my lion king jigsaw so far. This has taken me hourssssss

    spot simba

    There's 4 corner pieces in 1000 pieces so that's a 1 in 250 chance if that makes sense?

    Sorry I love maths too much I have to make everything about it 😂
    Oooh aha

    Great to see you've found a new hobby @Shaunie I can't wait to see the finished picture :)

    I used to do jigsaws with my granddad and there were always pieces going missing!!
  • ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,272 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix
    Finished it!!!  But there are two pieces missing. How annoying



  • mags98mags98 Posts: 287 Moderator
    I find it so satisfying seeing a completed puzzle. I didn't notice one of the pieces was missing, I saw the one in the sky but had to look really closely for the one on the bottom

    I've started this one today. It looks like it will be easier than the lion king one cause more colours and the pieces are bigger so can Actually see them

  • ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,272 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix

    My jigsaw atm. Doing it in the garden lol
  • ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,272 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix


    Finished it! No pieces missing this time

    This is the jigsaw I'm doing at the moment



    And this is what I've done so far
     the jigsaw seems to be slightly different to the box with bird in the cornerp

    I don't have any puzzles at home and they're quite expensive to buy so I've been using a jigsaw puzzle app. You can pick from loads of pictures and how many pieces you want etc. It's not quite the same as a normal puzzle but it passes the time!
