The puzzle has been mailed off to Fairblue. If history is any guide, it will take about 2 weeks to get to her.
Much, much less than that. I received it in the post this morning.

I have started the puzzle. Unfortunately, while I am quite willing and able to ignore the laundry, sundry other chores and even Mr FB (sometimes) to get it completed I have other obligations I am obliged to meet, so will not be nearly as quick as KK.

It has already had me scratching my head when I found an edge piece I couldn't make out. It finally dawned on me that I was looking at KK's signature which, of course, isn't on the picture. :doh:

It's coming along nicely. There are so many pieces I recognise that I'm finding it difficult to decide which bits to concentrate on.

Are you actually coming to America, id?
What part?
I’m in Massachusetts.
Not to America, no, just visiting a mate who is working with the USMC so has access to an American address. I'd like to get to Massachusetts some time though!

For the first time in nearly a week I was able to have another go at the puzzle. I had thought I might finish it today but Mr FB has developed a terrible habit of wanting to be fed occasionally, so I shall spend more time on it tomorrow.

I have finished it. I intend to leave it up for a day or so to admire my handiwork and then I shall pop it in the post to Kismet.

Awesome! I'm looking forward to my turn and getting up close and personal with it.

Super job! Don’t forget to sign it in the corner and put the date.

My turn for the jigsaw! The table is nearly cleared and I will be able to start sorting the pieces imminently.

This was a lovely jigsaw to make. I got slightly confused, wanting certain colour ways to belong to books on my bookshelf rather than the editions in the jigsaw, but it was great fun.

So, who's next? I'll post it to the first person who asks and messages me their address.

That’s fantastic! Remember to sign it before you mail it onwards.
