i was looking for you...you WERE online

tugman22

Don't understand the last bit!!

left a bunch of "comments" re looking for you. LOL i did NOT write down which puzzles were designated for "postings".

tugman22

I don't understand that last comment?

not here either :(

tugman22

:-PPP

:>)

tugman22

Good to hear that, Calluna! Speak to you again!! :-))

calluna

More like kid in a candy store excitement! :-)

tugman22

Kathy, I don't think that I should be talking to you, as you beat me!LOL

Very good time. The challenge and those last few minutes, as you near the end of the jig, are so rewarding!! I've not been called "sir" in a long time!! LOL

tugman22

Thanks for your comment, calluna. Sounds as if you will get a headache choosing that next jig!! LOL

katwoody99

John, you and Aishah have corrupted me with these monsters! And now here I am with a good time on this one!! I really enjoyed this, thank you sir :-))

calluna

Oh, and now comes the next challenge . . . choosing which one to do next! Oh dear, so many to choose from. Thanks for the suggestion pdevredis. I've bookmarked the gemetric rec's and sky one. And gypsywest tends of have a variety of yummy ones. Not to mention "wheels" right here, with all those great, vibrant colours. Hmmmm......

calluna

Whew! Another monster jig done! Thanks for the challenge . . . I think. LOL! ;-)

aishahm

LOL!

tugman22

I've been quiet because I've been trying to finish this darned jig!! LOL

I am a very modest man, Aishah! LOL

aishahm

John, you have been really quiet the past couple of days. And you didn't say a word about beating me again.

aishahm

Pat, we always seem to find the same puzzles. That puzzle is in my bookmarks. I finished this blue beast last night and started the candy monster (and it is definitely a monster). It seems as though I keep working monster after monster with a few puzzles here and there from you and Hanne. I think I may need my head examined. LOL!

pdevredis

I took a break with this puzzle--it's not a monster by any means, but it was fun to do the combo of rigidly geometric recs and no-pattern sky. If anyone else needs a rest, I recommend it! LOL!

aishahm

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You beat me good. : )

aishahm

John, you are still ahead of me. See you on the board soon. Maybe the gold monster wore everyone out. LOL!

tugman22

44% = 3.35

tugman22

Pat & Kathy, we will see you when you get there.

I hope the "gold" jig wasn't too traumatic, Kathy, seeing as you were not going to do it originally!! LOL

tugman22

Aishah, it sounds as if another couple of addicts may join us soon!! LOL

katwoody99

No "shortly" here either! Just finished gold fabric, this one will stay bookmarked for a while:-))

pdevredis

Pat will be along, yes--but I wouldn't bet on the "shortly"!

aishahm

That was a beast and a half, John. Guess I will enjoy being in second place for the short time that it takes you to finish. LOL!

aishahm

We thought the same thing on the gold monster. Then they suddenly started appearing on the board. Maybe it's taking them a long time too. I'm sure Kathy and Pat will be along shortly.

tugman22

LOL!! Not many people are doing this jig, Aishah!! Who, but us, would want to do a jig of badly fitted, dirty mosaic tiles?!!

aishahm

Oh yes, you will definitely beat my time. It took me nearly 3 hours to get to 33%. Right now, I am nearly 6 hours in and only 55%. I like the puzzle, but it's not liking me. LOL!

tugman22

30% = 1.50, Aishah!

aishahm

LOL! Nearly 5 hours and not quite halfway. This one is tough.

tugman22

It's not easy, Aishah, is it?

aishahm

John, at the rate I'm going, this one will take me longer than the gold monster did. LOL! : )

aishahm

Kathy, angel1993 made a monster candy puzzle. The name is not in english, so I don't know what it means. If I ever get brave enough to work it, I am sure it would be a monstrous beast for all of us.

John, this puzzle is turning out much harder than I imagined. Perfect for a snowy day off work. Thank you.

tugman22

hiya, pd. i thought you knew to take anything that i say with a pinch of salt!! lol

i've never done an absolutely plain jig but i understand what you mean re solving!

remember "pinch of salt" lol

pdevredis

Thanks, Kathy! :-)))

katwoody99

I know, Aishah! You just appealed to my own inner nuttiness!! :-)) What is the candy monster? ... Yikes, like I need another one!! I have a dozen of your older ones bookmarked already!!

Oh, Pat - just finished your freehand tiles monster. Loved it!!

pdevredis

Of course we'd be well past insane to even consider it! LOL!!! But that won't stop us! I also have it bookmarked, and I'm still trying to decide what to solve, and in which order......

aishahm

Kathy, I'm not sure I exactly shamed you into the gold monster. I just wanted you to come enjoy the torture with me. LOL! I have to say that this monster is turning meaner by the minute. I am nearly 3 hours in and only at 33%. Yikes! Pat, you are definitely right about the patterns sometimes being distracting (and it was in the gold monster). BTW, what did you decide on that candy monster? I'm thinking I would be well past insane to even consider it. And yet I saved it just in case.

pdevredis

Thanks, Kathy! I've started this puzzle, and I'll see how it goes before I decide on which other one to do next, Hanne's or the gold fabric one. Hmmmm.... maybe I should stop doing this one and just try the gold one, since that seems to be the monster-to-end-all-monsters so far! LOL!

katwoody99

I agree with you completely, Pat! That's why this one will be on the back burner ... because I'm struggling through the gold fabric monster! John and Aishah shamed me into it, but I can't handle more than one hunt-and-peck special:-)) There are just too many good puzzles including monsters out there! I followed your comments and checked on the irjeni mosaic; did it in 81 pieces and decided to pass on the 400-pc, may try the 225-pc. I did Hanne's monster "it suddenly appeared" (I think that's the name) and it was great, much more challenging than expected but do-able!

pdevredis

Okay--I wasn't really sure, since people on Jigidi have told me I "rant", when all I think I'm doing is explaining myself clearly and fully..... :-)))

Anyway, what did you think about my point? I know that I have done puzzles that were impossible to solve in any way other than by using the shapes of the pieces faster than ones of the same size where I got distracted by trying to use the pattern or colors as a clue...

tugman22

Joking, Pat!!!!!!!

pdevredis

Sorry. :-(((

tugman22

you have NEVER gloated, aishah. it is not in your nature!! lol

aishahm

Thanks, John. And yes I saw it and just that one time I didn't gloat. Don't count on me doing that of...the not gloating part I mean. LOL

tugman22

Good luck, Aishah. Did you see that you beat me by 5 seconds on one jig!! :-))

tugman22

Wow, did you swallow the dictionary, Pat!! So many words!! LOL

aishahm

Three cheers for a snow day. Jigidi here I come! LOL.

pdevredis

I've been doing other monsters, by Aishahm and irjeni and even by me, and I missed that one of yours, too. But I did check it out yesterday after I found and solved your Splat, and I saw the times posted..... HA!!!!!! I really do swear that a puzzle in that many pieces but all a solid color would have faster times. I know I've said it before, but I've seen the times on those solid ones, and people go faster because they are never distracted by (usually futile) attempts to match patterns and colors. And with a solid color, the shapes of the knobs and cutouts are easier to see, and that's all you can use to solve either kind, when all is said and done...

tugman22

I didn't see you on my "Gold" jig, PD!!

pdevredis

Having just taken 3 1/2 hours to do irjeni's 900 tile puzzle, which was multicolored, I can imagine what this one will be like--Yikes! LOL!
