Tidy start to the New Year!

The jigsaw is finished! It didn't take as long as I had thought it would, once I'd got all the edge pieces in place - and worked out that parts of the picture were not the same as the one on the box lid!

It was laid on a big piece of card, and by taping across the finished jigsaw with some low tack tape so it wouldn't move, I managed to bend it enough to get it through the doorway, and it is now residing on the spare bed until I can bring myself to break it up! This means I now have my desk back. Not only that, because I had to clear it to make room for the jigsaw, my desk is tidy! Here's the proof.

Look well, for you're not likely to see it like that again for a long time! Just got a couple of things to catch up on before I can start messing it up again.....

That's a fabulous jigsaw Lynne. How unusual and I can understand you not wanting to break it up just yet.

What a gorgeous jigsaw Lynne. I have never sween one like it!

I would be tempted to have it framed - the colours are just so stunning!!

I could never break it up.

Loving the look of your craft space. It would take me all of 30 minutes to mess that up!!

Wishing you a great 2010.

Love Jules xx

What a lovely Jigsaw, Lynn. Well done you for getting it done so quickly. I've got one to do but dare not start it otherwise there'll be no crafting done at all.
What a tidy desk!!!!
Happy Crafting and stay safe in the snow.
