MasterPieces 500 Pieced Puzzles

Hi Welcome to the Jigthings Jigsaw puzzle blog.

This week in the UK it is the second British Jigsaw Championship!
http://jigsawfestival.org.uk/
There are several types of puzzles that are to be made and there is competitions for making 1000 piece jigsaws in the quickest time , there is also a doubles competition where they make 1500 puzzles against the clock and each other. The Championship is held in Saint Marys Church in New Market, New market is famed for horse racing in the UK i hope the crowds in the church dont get as excited as the punters at the races!

It sounds very grand but it is a bit smaller than the American puzzle Parlay which is in its twelfth year this year, i will give a for more details about the parlay in the next blog.

http://www.puzzleparley.org/index.html

On with the blog, i hope you find the puzzles enjoyable i know they gave me a hard time cropping the images the sizes of the puzzles differ so much for Master pieces.

Summer Jigsaw Puzzles

Hi
It is now summer in the UK and it’s really beginning to warm up here.

We often get asked for larger frames than the ones we have on our website. Recently a lady called from Italy who had just finished the 13,000-piece-sized puzzle called ‘The Creation of Adam’ which is a jigsaw of the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. I am afraid that we do not make a frame that large – I think the shippers would struggle to get it there in one piece!
The puzzle is available on Amazon and if you fancy the challenge you can buy it Here
There is a six-part video of the puzzle; the first part is below if you fancy a watch.

Happy jigging!

Photomosaic Puzzles

Hi welcome to the unique world of Photomosaic jigsaw puzzles. What are they you may ask? If you take a look at the Jigthings Jigsaw puzzle blog below you will certainly find out.

“Patented by digital artist Robert Silvers, the unique process takes thousands of small images and blends them to create a larger portrait. Beautiful and colourful on their own, each of the small photos work together to create the beloved painting.”

Photomasic close up
As the image shows to the left (click on it and the image will get larger) they look fantastic and they can prove a real challenge when making the Jigsaw puzzle. Colin (the owner here at Jigthings) thinks that these puzzles take around 4 times longer to make and prove to be a lot harder than normal puzzles – so if you fancy a challenge have a look at the puzzles below.

Keeping with the Star Wars puzzles which we know get a lot of love, we have found a video on how puzzles are laser cut, not with the use of a lightsaber may I add! It really is amazing that a laser can make such a good job, it takes a lot longer than I thought it would.

Please take a look, the video is a bit drawn-out but very impressive to say the least.

Happy Jigging

Spring Themed Jigsaw puzzles

Hi and Welcome to the Spring Blog by Jigthings

henSpring is a great time of the year in the UK. We have had a nest of robins that have just fledged, 4 new robins for the orchard and gardens – a welcome addition. We had a moorhen chick appear as well; we are not sure where he came from (possibly from the pond about half a mile away). It’s the first time I have seen a moorhen chick – they look very prehistoric to me – you can see him in the picture here. He was prowling near our frog pond!

Looking around the jigsaw news, we have found a gentlemen who loves to frame his puzzles; he has framed 83 of them! We will soon have the Jigframes back in stock on our website. I might drop Raymond a link when we get them so he can see then how easy it is to swap jigsaws in the frames in a couple of minutes.

Saint Georges Day – Dragons

Hi and welcome to the Jigthing’s blog.

They say romance is dead but this young man in the UK found a novel way to propose to his girlfriend.  I am sure if there were still dragons about, he would have slain one for her instead!

st-george-cross-england-flag-8ft-x-5ft-373-pHere in the UK we celebrate Saint George’s Day on 23rd April every year.  It is also celebrated in many countries around Europe. Saint George is best known in the Golden Legend for slaying a dragon to save Princess Sabra and then went on to slay all the dragons in Libya.
If you would like to have a read about Saint George and his exploits, take a look at the links below.

Easter Jigsaw puzzles

Hi! With Easter nearly upon us we thought we would find some of the more unusual puzzles out there for you to try.

Easter BunnyEaster is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the 3rd day after his crucifixion. Today we give chocolate eggs to the children, but many years ago the eggs were highly painted in bright colours to give them further meaning as a gift. They were mainly hard-boiled chicken eggs rather than chocolate.

Early Anglo-Saxon legend states that the Saxon goddess Eostre found a wounded bird and transformed her into a hare or rabbit and the rabbit could lay eggs. It decorated the eggs each spring as offerings to the goddess Eostre, hence the rabbit and eggs that we see on the shelves in shops today.

Below is a man called John Wittneben dedicated to the hobby of dissectology (or Jigsaw puzzling to you and me!). He is fanatical about Jigsaws.
