PM, anyone who finished this one should have a medal!! Yours is in the post!! LOLOL
After looking at this for almost 8 hrs, I had temp blindness!! All I could see were the b&w patterns in front of me! Ouch!!
MNP, A VERY good time! Well done and thanks for commenting!!
some you 'see'. some you just do because you started it:)
You know that, if you open it you will do it, StudyBreak!! LOL Good to hear from you!!
I think I know better than to touch this one, lol. Though at 442 pieces, you could have made it a lot harder. Maybe I'll just open it and take a peek at the pieces. :)
Keep at it, Magda. It WILL feel good as that last piece "clicks" into place!! LOL
Well I am still at it, pose 2 to 5 pieces a day. Remember, going for the World record for the longesttime in Puzzle solving. Am at 36 % And around 5 1/2 hours.LOL
well done, catty. everest is climbed!! lol
I DID IT I DID IT WOOP GO ME :D
Catty, it does get easier!! Just as you put the last piece in place!! LOLOLOL
56% and its taken me 7 hours blimey gonna take me forever oh well im not giving up no way
Great comment, Blitzy!! Leader board too!! Well done!
You NEED to enjoy a challenge for this one, catty. Thanks for commenting!
I did IT I DID IT! now to the loony bin^^
well ive done about a quarter of it and so far its taken me about 6 hours but i like a challenge :)
catty, it took ALL of us a GOOD while!!! i hope you are "enjoying" the challenge!! lol
this puzzle is taking me a while
i like to pose a few REAL CHALLENGES on the site, AD! i'm glad that you joined in the fun!! lol
What a fun Challenge! Took me a long time.
You could be heading for a record, Magda!! LOL. I wonder what the longest solve time is?!!!
Could be 30 hours, lets see. I am still surprised when a piece really fits!
Wow, John - crazy close on such a big jig! I'm getting a little better I think... or perhaps just a little crazier:-)))
Nice to hear from you again, Ignatz! You DO like a challenge!! LOL
Magda, I had one person tell me they took 24hrs to complete one of my jigs!! Staying power!! LOL
Well, I am still at 29%. Work sometimes for half an hour without posing a single piece. Well, I might get into Guiness Book of World Records, if it goes on, for the highest score, maybe 20 hours? LOL
Can hardly believe it's over - 18:28:55 - and I made the board ... for now. PHEW!!!
That was sooooo close, Kathy, but the best man won in the end!! LOL
2:10:20 and 23%. I may have to wait until the monitor comes off later this week. I've been setting it off all night. LOL!
Like the new tag , GS!! LOL
4:3o = 48% . Getting there!!
Thank you all for your kind comments - I still don't know why I am spending all these hours everyday when I had definitely intended to give it up in the new year. These big ones are just too hard to resist!Granny Stonehengia
Do you want me to lie to you?!! LOL
That is not what I wanted to hear! You are starting to scare me now. I need words of encouragement!
I'm on 2hrs for 35% so i'm looking at a similar time!!
OMG! I just saw Kathy's time. We usually finish in the same time zone. Yikes!
Good to hear that, Magda! Give it a rest for a while!! Speak soon!:-))
Thanks John. Oh I will finish it in time. I dont like things left unfinished. But as you say, its no more fun. Thanks.
Hi, Kathy. I'm struggling with this one myself. We will see! ;-)))
Stonehengia, my turn to eat humble pie!! I knew we had had this conversation before and I thought Aishah was wrong. I should have known better!! LOL You are a very good "jigger" and that is the main thing! Take care!!
Don't worry, Magda! These are very tough. It's no use doing things if they are not fun!! I was pleased that you gave it a try!! If you like a jig and want a different size(number of pieces), just let me know, roughly, how many pieces and I'll post it for you!! :-))
A toughie for sure! Granny Stonehengia, you are amazing! John, I expect you will be closer to her time than to mine, but I had fun anyway. LOL!!
Granny Stonehengia. Has a nice ring to it. I like it! : )
2.45 and still 25%. I give up. I used to do those 1000 pc. Ravensburger Puzzles. On a big cardboard, during the nights under the bed. So I used to place sometimes 10, and if I could more pieces. So I will do this one the same way, taking maybe one week to finish it--every day a bit. Sorry, I lost the challenge!
Hi grandma stonehenge! You seem to have nimble fingers! congrats!
Aishahm, thank you for putting the record straight - and Tugman , I am definitely not a bloke!!! Maybe I should change my name to Stonehengia ? I am now actually a granny so from now on if you refer to me call me granny Stonehengia!
2 1/2 hours and 25%. Only posed 3 last half hour. This is horrible. Yes I know, make it bigger and then move about...impossible!! Enough for today!
I do them a different way to you, Magda, as I couldn't deal with small pieces! I get headaches no matter what the size of the pieces!! LOL
Ah, thanks for that, Aishah!! I remember there was a gender confusion!! LOL
Stonehenge is a female. I called her a he and she corrected me. So now I say she.
yes, it went quite well for the frame, but now I am stuck. have done big ones before, with disastrous results, all these tiny pieces give me headache.
Isn't stonehenge a guy, Aishah? I think someone made the gender mistake before. Whatever, they ALWAYS do an excellent time!!
I wonder how many "stars" we can group together this time, Kathy?!! We had three before!
Magda, you are doing really well, too! I'm being passed by everyone!! Have you done any bigger jigs before?
That's a REALLY good time, PAT. I think I need to try harder!! LOL
Stonehenge just posted a decent time on the board. Unfortunately, my times are normally double hers. So I'm thinking it may be a while before I finish
1 hr and 21 %. In the last half hour I could pose ca 10 pcs, and it was a big surprise, to see that they fitted. Can anyone tell me, why I am doing this?
Interesting ... like John, I'm at 24%; just over his time at 1:48!
Just done the border ca 18 % in ca 25 or 27 min. The pieces are so tiny. And now its time to sleep. Good night-
19%=30 minutes, but all that means is that I have the frame done.......
24% = 1: 40. I hope for sub 6hr!! Finished for today. Good luck everyone working on this one! :-))
Running all day? I presume you mean "busy" as opposed to "athletic"!! We all know we're insane for doing these jigs!! Join the gang!! :-))
I haven't started this one yet. Been running all day. Now looking at the only time posted, I beginning to question my sanity for even thinking about this puzzle. LOL!
It's like climbing Everest, Ignatz. Because it is there!! LOL. I'll see you at the finishing line!!
I'm at 20% after over 2 hours ... have to rest the eyes for a bit - OMG, why do we do it?
Something to aim at, Pat! LOL
Well, someone finished it.......... OMG.............
would have if i could, aishah!! lol
OMG! Yes, I will probably need to turn off the monitor, but there is a limit of 4 hours at a time. Looking at your time, I may need to do two sessions. Imagine if you had done 540 pieces!
I'm on 14% and 50mins at the moment, Aishah. It won't be as bad/good as the "gold fabric" but will keep you occupied on your "snow days". If you still have the monitor, switch it off while you do the jig!!LOL
Good to hear that you will join in "the madness", Kathy. :-))
Funny, the gang's all here and no solves yet. John, I believe you have created a supermonster. : )
Here I am! Will probably tackle this one gradually, but tackle it I will:-)))
I couldn't let you do it without me, could I? LOL
John, you are joining us tortured souls aren't you? After all you are the Frankenstein of this monster. LOL!
Good to hear from you, girls!! Enjoy!! LOL
Pat, how did I know you would stop by? And you are as much a jigidi addict as I am if you going to work this too. Once Kathy gets here, the gang will be all here! : )
This is definitely a monster-monster, not a goldi-monster! Hmmmmmm.................... maybe Ill try it..... !
OMG! John, you are insane! Well, I think it's me that's the insane one, considering I am planning on working this one. I got my snow day and I'm almost positive I'm getting two in a row followed by my regular three day weekend. : )
