Good to hear that the jigsaw is on the move again and June will have the opportunity to have a go at making it up. 

Remember to post photos when you receive it June and when you have completed the jigsaw  ;D

Do we have anyone else "across the pond" who would like to try the jigsaw after June has completed it and before it comes back to Europe?

Hi Lynda - I will take photos as directed and am awaiting said puzzle with anticipation !

Hi Rod and June,

I wonder where the jigsaw is now -- have you started to fit it together, June? Looking forward to seeing those pictures :) .

For my family, Christmas is jigsaw time -- already looking forward to a puzzle that my Mum has ordered for us (sadly not of QE2).

Hi Isabelle and Rod - Thanks very much for your posts.  Rod, I hope you are feeling better and that all will be going well soon.  I will take a picture when the jigsaw arrives and then when I have finished it.

So true Rod, I remember putting together the pieces for the hull of the ship and the skyscrapers tested my patience. But on the plus side the sense of achievement when the puzzle was finished was brilliant.   :)

I am awaiting the puzzle excitedly and becoming a "little scared" as to the prospects of an easy fit together.  But I'm ready for it....
