I love puzzles of any kind! I think Jigsaws are a lot of fun, but the kids always seem to run off with the pieces! lol We even have a "puzzle roller" that allows us to roll up a puzzle and put it away. When we are ready to work on it again, we just pull out the puzzle roller and all of the pieces are exactly where we left them! (I love that thing!) It's been a while since we pulled out the last puzzle (probably close to a year...been busy) but I think it was a dinosour puzzle for the boys room.

I am a puzzle freak (or so my family says.) I can easily put a 1000 piece together in 3 days. Of course my dogs like to steal a piece here and there. My main problem though is where to store all of them. If anyone would like one, let me know, I'm always willing to share puzzles and cook books.

I love jigsaw puzzles. We always get some out during the holidays or whenever the kids are home for a few days. It's so much fun to talk with the kids while we are searching for just the right piece. We can work together or do our own thing in our own color, or corner or straight edge search. It's relaxing and rewarding and a good way to spend quality time with kids, big or small. emoticon Fun to do on snowy cold days!

Nope, I don't have the patience to do them. My mom & brothers were emoticon at them. For a small bout I did do some jigsaw puzzles when I was living with my boyfriend, now husband in NH as a form of group entertainment at our place. We usually had people dropping by every night or so, and with that many new eyes around I'd set up a jigsaw puzzle and have everyone help me put it together to keep my frustration down.

YES! I really enjoy the Charles Wysockey 1000 puzzles so much. I get ones that relate to family or friends and put together and frame as a gift. I have several on my walls. emoticon

I love jigsaw puzzles--and most kinds of puzzles. However, I don't have room right now. The last one I worked on was at my in-laws'. They had started one before Thanksgiving one year and I worked on it then and we finished it when we visited for Christmas.

Yeah, I've never had the patience to complete one myself...I've been trying to work on my patience, though, and I think this would be a great way to build it.

I can't remember the last time I have done one. When I was a kid we had one set up on the table all the time (the big 5000 pieces) for the whole family. We would all just walk by and put pieces in when we had time.

only if they have under 100 pcs. Not too patient!

Don't remind me, ha ha ha. My son says I get "grumpy" when I do them. I think he means I get so focused that I block everything out. So, I don't do them very much any more. But, I do love to do crosswords and sudoku and word scramble.

I love them and I work on the ones my sisters have going at their houses, but my cats are little piece thieves!!! So I will do a whole puzzle and end up with three pieces missing... made me so angry I decided to buy them ones I would enjoy also and go and spend time with them, like we did when we were kids, hunched over a table putting together increasingly more difficult puzzles.

I like putting jigsaw puzzles together. I have one going now that is of the U.S. Capital building. It is very hard, for those age 12 and up. There are strange pieces and flags all over!! I do enjoy it though.

How about you? Do you put together jigsaw puzzles?
