Hi Lynda - Thank you very much for your posts telling us how you went about it and the pictures !  Great job !  It is so satisfying to do a QE2 jigsaw.  Who is next ? -- UK addresses first ?  or US addresses ?  And who else will add their names to the list ?  This is a great way to add more miles to QE2's voyages, even if it is by proxy !  June

Does this mean QE2 (jigsaw) will make an Atlantic crossing ?

Yes June, I will parcel up the jigsaw and send it to Rod tomorrow or Friday. 

Jigsaw is doing a transatlantic crossing!  :)

I think her ETA may be Friday or Saturday.  Our QE2 (jigsaw) is doing quite well docking without the aid of tugs.   ;D

Finally!!!!!
The Jigsaw has docked in Poinciana, FL. I will be away from home for the next couple of days but when I get back I will clear space on the kitchen counter and start! And will take some Happy snappies.
I assume that June will be next?
