Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, J for Jigsaw

 

Welcome to Our World Tuesday! This meme continues in memory of the work of Klaus Peter, whose "that's My World" brought people together from around the world every Monday to share the wonders therein--big and small.Please click on our  logo for "Our World Tuesday" in the sidebar. Thank you Team of O. W. T.

We thank Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC, and we must thank Roger too for the weekly job to find  ten bloggers for each of the ABC Team members  to visit and to read their posts. We are beginning to find another round for all the 26 letters of the alphabet. This will be now the letter J.

At home I have several jigsawpuzzles varying from 500 pieces to 1000 pieces. It was always a great pleasure to complete a puzzel together with the children and grandchildren, who loved to do this.In 2002 I was in Oz and had taken a difficult puzzle for the grandchildren. My eldest grandson thought the puzzle rather difficult and said:"I need an adult, this is too difficult"!


Even more difficult are the so-called puzzle balls or 3D sphere puzzles.The 3D puzzle is not so difficult as all the pieces are numbered.

I have never heard of/seen 3D puzzles. seems like a fun (well not for me, maybe, cause I am not a patient person, but kudos for you and your grandchildren.)

I'm a great fan of jigsaws but I've never attempted a 3D one.

What a lot of wonderful puzzles. We have a great 3D one of New York's Empire State Building.

The globe puzzle is fascinating. To imagine such a thing is a great leap because normally it would be as flat as we once saw the world. What a perfect learning tool and good job to the young lad!

Jah puzzelen... kom maar op ;-) Heb er al vele in elkaar gelegd en ook weer uit elkaar gehaald.... de grootste ooit was de Nachtwacht met 8000 stukjes...
Heerlijk tijdverdrijf.

Fijn abc-w-week Wil.

As a family we too have, over the years, enjoyed completing Jigsaws.
My father in law was an absolute genius at them, he would always be
helping the grandchildren,
He worked as a Lt Commander in the Royal Navy in the Bomb Disposal Unit, during WW2, so I guess he had a fine eye for detail.
Still miss him!

Best wishes,
Di.

I think the puzzle spheres would make me a bit crazy.
My hubby is so good at puzzles. I wish I was.

My children and husband liked to do Jig-saw puzzles in the winter. But it wasn't one of my favorite things to do. While they were doing the puzzle, I was off somewhere with my nose in a book. That's my favorite pastime.

Norma Ruttan said...

what patience it must have taken to put that 3-D puzzle together! I dare not do them with a Siamese who thinks it's her job to sit atop tables, counters etc. I wish that I could come up with a humane way to break her of that.

Ann said...

I think the globe jigsaw would be so challenging, I will stick with the easier ones.

one thing is for sure big or small deciphering a puzzle calls for patience! Nice post, it has bees a while I solved one; will certainly buy one this weekend.

OOh I love jigsaws. We hardly had any when we were growing up but now I enjoy them with the kids or find them on the Net.

Those are beautiful jigsaw puzzles and a fun multi-generational activity ... Good to see kids doing games that don't require electronics these days. But they do have jigsaw puzzle apps for your IPad nowadays! A solitary activity that way though!

Hildred said...

Those global jigsaws look beatiful and very challenging....

Ann said...

Your answer to Jammin--is rocking to the music.

Those 3D balls are amazing! I never seem to have enough patience (or space) to finish jigsaws, but did teach my children how to do them when they were younger. (It was educational for them)

Jigsaw Puzzles have been so good for my dear old pop (92) It makes his boring days go by faster.
Good choice for the letter J- yikes on those 3-D ones!
When our power went out a couple weeks ago my daughter and I got a jigsaw puzzle out and had fun putting it together.

Forgetfulone said...

Very cool post! I have three large jigsaw puzzles that my mom put together. My dad glued them in place and mounted them on cardboard and framed them for me. They are so special to me.

Hilde said...

wooow, you need quiet a lot of patience to complete such puzzles!!!
Visiting from ABC Wednesday, enjoyed your contribution. Greetings from Hilde

I never had the patience to do puzzles. once my girls was finishing a 500 piece, and the cleaner moved it. She never went back to finishing it.
