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.

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.
