Finished

The puzzle - the artist is Tom Antonishak. This certainly was a challenging puzzle - 1000 pieces in a space approximately the same as an A3 page.

Ducks and Dogs has had a wash and is ready to be posted if I can find the right size box.

Today I made a 'matching' laundry bag - these will be packed together and sent off for an Aussie Hero. Thanks to Jan-Marie for coordinating this project.

Something else I have been playing with today.

I am remembering what it is like to work with flimsy fabric and I need to be patient and take care if I am to be successful. I'll show when I'm done no matter what.

The sunshine was most welcome this weekend and I enjoyed getting out in it.
Hope your weekend has included some of the things you love.

Im jigsaw challenged. You must have a very patient nature.

I popped over to see what the laundry bag making was about. Great idea !

Cute puzzle. I remember how relaxing and fun jigsaw puzzles can be. Haven't done one in ages.
