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.

Youtube, as ever, never ceases to amaze me with its range of videos.  One of the best videos I have found for a long time is the Ravensburger Krypt video by VAT19 – well worth 90 seconds of your life.
