Is the courier firm's tracking device twinned with QE2's AIS?  ;D

Hi All -- When I arrived home from work yesterday evening, our beloved QE2 was waiting for me, docked alongside my house - in the form of the QE2 jigsaw !  (Ah, how I wish she could be docked alongside one of our houses - we could take turns !)

Thank you, Rod, very much for sending the jigsaw along to me. 

After giving three violin classes in the evening, I got down to doing what I had been anticipating all evening !

The puzzle is opened - it is spread out to start work - border is done ! 

More tonight !!

Hi Rod - Thanks for your post.  I usually do pretty well on the border, and I can see QE2 herself being fit together fairly fast.  BUT, I can see myself slowing way down on the water and the skyscrapers.  I'll take another picture tonight.

Glad it got to you safely!

The only jigsaw better travelled than that one, is probably the ones that travelled around the world on board QE2!

Hi Rob - Thanks very much for your post.  What has been the itinerary of this jigsaw ?  Perhaps we can keep it going on its world-wide travels.  June

Evening 2 of the QE2 jigsaw.  Even in a puzzle picture, she is absolutely beautiful, awesome, majestic, and powerful !

The order in which you assembled the jigsaw, is a bit different from ours! But there were three of us, and we each took a different side of the table, once the frame had been laid.

Hi Isabelle - Thank you very much for your post.  The jigsaw is quite a well-travelled jigsaw.  As Rob said, probably the most travelled jigsaw aside from the ones on QE2 herself.  Actually, once I had outlined the puzzle, the next three parts I did were "Queen Elizabeth 2", "Cunard", and her bow also.  Hopefully, I will be able to finish tonight.  Anyone interested in being the next "builder" ?  June

Go on -- Christmas is coming, and this is the jigsaw season! Family evenings reminiscing about QE2... the jigsaw will be ideal for boosting those lovely memories...!

Good work June!  I remember the sky, and the windows of the skyscrapers most... oh and the QE2's windows...

Hi Rob - Thank you very much for your post and kind words.  Evening three, and the QE2 jigsaw puzzle is finished.  I had not done a jigsaw puzzle in quite some time.  I enjoy doing them very much and had a great time fitting together our QE2 in puzzle form.  Attached are some photos including some close-ups.  Who is the next person in line for the jigsaw ?  June

Hi Isabelle - Thanks very much for your post.  Yes, the puzzle has already been seen by four of my students, and there was considerable discussion concerning QE2 prior to each lesson.  And, I just found out that one of our faculty members has travelled extensively on QE2.  Her face brightened with the mention of QE2.  June

QE2 has that effect on people who know her and have travelled on her. 

Seeing the jigsaw completed brings back memories of the sense of achievement when the jigsaw was finished and the delight of taking time to stand and stare and remember this great ship. 

I wonder who will be next to volunteer and which part of the world the jigsaw will go to next.
