Pretty Scene

My husband likes to do his jigsaw puzzles. He finished this one, which is 1,000 pieces in just a few weeks. That is good timing based on the fact that he never works on them during the workweek only the weekends, although last week he worked on it on Friday and alot on Saturday. The scene is an autumn scene in what appears to be on Mennonite farm. Sorry for the glare and the distraction of the tablecloth in the background. ~Photo is mine

This is so pretty, warm colours, you can almost feel the smell of Autumn.

It is so pretty, the picture does not show the detail of it, you can almost smell the horses when you see it up close.

@LadyDuck Yes, very much like the smells and colours of the season of spring, although it feels so much shorter every year. When the orchards are in bloom it is a lovely time to be out.

@Juliaacv - I love those places during the fall season, there is something magic about the smells and colours.

Very nice..what do you do with them when he has finished one? Some people are so wasteful, I remember one time at the dump I saw a big one that had been built in a frame that someone was just throwing away. I swear people will throw out anything.

@Juliaacv Yes, and some day they might make nice heirlooms at least one or two.

@snowy22315 We're just happy to have them to hang on my office walls and to use as decoration on the coffee table.

We will put a large puzzle out on the coffee table after the glue has dried on it. We have some seasonal ones that make for a nice decoration.

That's a lovely puzzle. I should take out my puzzles and do them again. How are you feeling? Have a good day.

Thank you. It is a good pastime for him during the cold months when he is inside more. Funny you should ask me about how I am feeling. I hate to tell you. On Sunday evening I started with a sore throat, it was worse on Monday and again on Tuesday and today I have it still as well as a low grade 37.8C temperature. This was how the pneumonia started in January.

@LindaOHio So far it is just a head cold but it really mushroomed during the course of the day today. I am taking a daytime cold pill and that is working.

The jigsaw is very pretty. 1000 pieces is a lot.

Thank you. He will not work on a puzzle with less than 1,000 pieces, he prefers them to be at least this size or have more but those are difficult to find.

I haven't done a jigsaw puzzle in ages but I do remember how much fun they were. That puzzle is really pretty and makes me want to do one again. Do you do puzzles too or just your hubby?

Doing puzzles was never something that I really enjoyed. He would always put up the card table on Boxing Day and we'd all pick away at it over the course of the Christmas holiday time. I bought him 2 seasonal ones, this one and a winter scene which took him a couple of years to finish. His next one is a black and white, which should be difficult.

@Marilynda1225 I do not know how you put that together. I remember my Gramma had a round puzzle of a squirrel with a nut when I was a child, and although I loved to look at the picture on the box, I was always strictly warned not to open it for fear of me accidentally losing some of the pieces. I don't know if she ever got that put together.

@Juliaacv A black and white puzzle should keep him busy for awhile. I remember many years ago someone gave me a solid red round puzzle. It was a challenge for sure but I got it done and probably with lots of unladylike words

That is a cool puzzle. I love doing jigsaw puzzles too. It's something my daughter loves as well, and often we'll work on a puzzle together. Do you glue the puzzles together and frame or keep them after they are completed? A lot of the puzzles my daughter does she'll save and frame and hang up on her bedroom walls.

We do glue them together. The seasonal ones, like this one, we will use as a mat on the coffee table come that time of the year. After that we can hang it.

That does look a very attractive jigsaw. Some are easier than others. Are they orange pumpkins? They would have been a bit tricky.

Yes, the pumpkins are orange. It was the trees on the left side and the right side of the puzzle that slowed him down.
