Finished !

Because I know you've all been dying to see how it turned out, here are the last pics of the cat jigsaw I did back in August.

This is it mostly completed:


And here it is - all done !


The keen observer will note that there's a piece missing from the lower left hand corner. I said there didn't seem to be enough edge pieces, and that one was actually missing from the brand new box. Grrrr.
  Still, it's a lovely picture, though hard work to complete. I did finish it back in August; I just didn't get around to uploading the pics from the camera to the computers.

Job done now :)

That's a really lovely puzzle! It looks quite challenging with the mosaic design.

I was just thinking of you the other day while I was sorting things for our upcoming yard sale. I have several cat-themed puzzles that I'm going to sell. As much as I love to do them, it's impossible with my feline children. Loki steals pieces...and not just the loose ones! Even if I cover the puzzle when I'm not actively assembling it! Scooter has also been known to take off with a piece or two. And I've never tried with Odin. I have a feeling he'd just decide to lie on the puzzle and demolish it with his vast pudge. Thankfully, Crickett is just too introverted and lazy to bother with it! LOL

I thought about trying to mail the puzzles to you, but one (which is actually about 10 smaller puzzles)is so heavy, it'd be very cost prohibitive, I'm afraid. I'm sure someone local will find them and love them though.

Fortunately my pair aren't interested in the jigsaws. I do them on a folding jigsaw case though, and cover them when I'm not working on them, so the cats can't destroy the jigsaws while I'm not about.

Thank you for thinking of me when you were sorting out your jigsaws. I was thining that it was ages since you'd posted anything, and was wondering how you were getting on.

Beautiful!

What do you do with finished puzzles? I know some people frame them, and you could put a card with the date in that corner.

Even if I could afford a frame for something that large, I don't really have anywhere to display it.

I put the jigsaws back in the box, and do them again at some point in the future. I've done 'The Literary Cat' at least twice so far. I have a couple of other cat jigsaws to do that I haven't done before: another Chrissy Snelling, and a Lesley Ann Ivory.

I wouldn't have anywhere either.

I love those cat ones, and I also have some puzzles ones: the picture contains the clues to the solution)--Morse and Colombo.
