Thursday Doors – Puzzle

What do you do on a chilly winter’s evening when you’re trying to work but suffering from writer’s block?
You could cosy up to a warm stove or open that book you’ve been meaning to read.
Or turn to what I did over this cold, damp spell – a jigsaw puzzle.
What could be more appropriate than this one for a Thursday Doors post?
I had a bit of help from an interested party.
So it was completed in no time at all.
I let The Gaffer put in the last few pieces. At least this puzzle didn’t end up in the same place as the last one I tried. It was a thousand piece desert scene, nothing but sand dunes.

    Love to puzzle – the really big ones. Great stress relief. You’re on the right track, Jean! Since you’ve written already several books, I wouldn’t worry about it, you’ll finish this one too:)

  8. I love puzzles and a door puzzle is perfect for Thursday, the first of its kind, I think. Did you really burn a puzzle?? The shot of the room with the stove made me nostalgic for our wood-burning stove in our former house. I would have been happy to sit and read all day, but alas, I had much to do. πŸ™‚

  10. Somewhere around here I have a Maxfield Parrish puzzle. It’s been mostly taken apart for storage, I’ve intended to finish it if I can ever find it. I love puzzles. I patented two of them actually. One is at The other is a 3D wooden cube, too expensive to manufacture.

    That is awesome! There must be door enthusiasts in the puzzle industry too! πŸ˜‰
    I love that you threw the other one in the fire. My friend has a puzzle with a very significant portion of clear blue sky. If she gets frustrated with it, I’ll make the same suggestion!

    I love jigsaw puzzles, but I don’t have any place to leave it out while I finish it. Sometimes I play online jigsaw puzzles, but they just aren’t as satisfying. And you can’t play with a friend, like you and The Gaffer. I can put a puzzle out and puzzle over it for days and enjoy the puzzling. My husband can’t rest nor sleep until he gets it DONE.

    Spent last night by the outdoor firepit. First night in ages with no wind and tolerable temps. Fireplace envy was cured πŸ˜‰
