Hi Rob, merry Christmas, he's a Whippet & he's going to help me (or not) will certainly post progress, starting tomorrow, seeing as how the forcast is grotty again. I thought of keeping the front packing complete with American postage from June (only thin brown paper) inside the box when I send it on to Helen, part of the provenance  I think.

Good to know that the jigsaw has arrived safely and looking forward to seeing more photos. 

I also love the dog, he looks keen to get started on the jigsaw!

Sorry Rod, I do not understand the connection between my comment about the dog (which was in jest) and the stolen phone with the pictures of the jigsaw.  But I am sure you will elaborate on the connection! :)

Todays update,  just like a teenager he soon became bored & left me to it,  I find this a tricky one to do.     He's a good boy Rod, he only steals food, not interested in anything else.

My dog, when we were doing the jigsaw would leap up and grab the tablecloth and upset or disassemble the jigsaw.

Hi Pete and All -- I am so pleased that our QE2 (in jigsaw form) was docked at your house upon arrival home !  And thanks for posting the great pictures.  Your assistant (your cute dog) looks indeed ready to help.  I am sure he went to sleep as he knew you had things well in hand.  And indeed, the jigsaw is a very well travelled jigsaw - amazing amount of miles !!  I am looking forward to the next progress report !  June

Hi Pete - Great work and you beat me in the amount of time it took to fit together QE2 !  I wonder how many ports of call our QE2 jigsaw will make during 2014 - a lot I hope.  Thanks for posting the picture.  Helen, I am sure you will enjoy it as much as the rest of us who have "built" our QE2 !!  Happy New Year to you, Pete, and all here on The QE2 Story Forum and to our QE2 so far away !!  June

Hi June, all the best to you for 2014, I've got to admit that I had help from my wife yesterday , when I gave myself a headache trying to match the water/sea pieces, or it might've been the vino, got to admit she was more interested in playing with her ipod, taking pictures , all in all good fun.

...new years eve with fireworks

The fireworks were well deserved! Great news, Pete, and wonderful to see the jigsaw laid and every piece still in the game :) .

Thank you so much for the pictures of yourself, jigsaw, dog and Christmas tree -- I still think that this time of year is just perfect for jigsaws. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoy seeing it on its world travels to Forum friends.

Hi Pete - Thank you very much for your post and good wishes.  All good wishes to you and your family for 2014 and to our beloved QE2.  Again, the pictures are great and Jim seems very well pleased with the outcome of the jigsaw.  June

Hi All,

The QE2 has docked safe and sound in a very wet and windy Cornwall.

Looking forward to starting it. Will post pictures soon.

Looking forward to your pictures, Helen -- have a lovely time assembling it!

And I suggest that you might post it to Peter Mugridge next -- unless you are within hand delivery distance :) .

Sorry for the delay, work has kept me extremely busy.

Finally sat down and started it on Wednesday night and then finished it last night. It was great seeing it come together. And really enjoyed doing it.

So where is it going next??

Wonderful to see this succession of pictures, and the jigsaw taking shape! So glad to see you enjoyed it.

It is so interesting how we all have our own jigsaw methods -- even in my family, we each approach it differently :)

Helen, the next volunteer is Peter Mugridge -- could I ask the two of you to get in touch with each other please, so that it can be sent to the right address?
