I struck it lucky on Christmas Day, receiving a well made and fun jigsaw puzzle from one of my stepdaughters.
I don’t usually use that label btw – they are adults – but it just makes it easier to describe the relationship in a blog post. I was really touched that she knew that I liked jigsaw puzzles and gifted me a good quality one. We buy a lot from op shops and sometimes the older ones are really flimsy and hard to put together.
Hubby and I spent a few days doing this together. Or should I say nights or even mornings as we were up until after 1.00am this morning finishing it. Jigsaws can be so addictive – especially when close to completion.
I listed on Buy Nothing and it was gone in a few hours.
A few weeks ago, I offered another jigsaw puzzle. This was one gifted to me by my neighbour. It was only 500 pieces so easy to complete – and good quality so a lot of fun. I also passed it on through the Buy Nothing Project when I had finished.
I’ve also noticed my previous jigsaw puzzle of The Fruit Dealer has gone around my Buy Nothing community not once but TWICE. I love seeing photos of it, completed, pop up on the group. Rather than hoarding it and keeping it in my cupboard, it’s the gift that keeps on giving and giving.
