My name is Patsy. I've been addicted to jigsaw puzzles since childhood. Now they're all online, and my addiction is stronger than ever thanks to this wonderful site. I'm amazed at the huge collection of puzzles here to choose from. And the way the whole site works. Thank you everybody.
I used to prefer puzzles with 400+ pieces, but have learned to enjoy medium and small puzzles too and now prefer them (partly because I can do more). And I even did tiny puzzles on my new smartphone while in the hospital a couple of years ago.
I don't like lots of detail, which I find distracting. I prefer puzzles with several large sections or areas, or a close-up on a contrasting background, so I can sort pieces. Then I work a lot by shape. I like animals (especially cats, butterflies, birds, bees, spiders) and flowers, but sometimes enjoy others. Recently I've added sunsets and tree bark & roots to my list of favourites. (I love looking at the geometric/abstract designs and some scenery and crafts, but only rarely choose to actually do those puzzles.) I do both new and old puzzles, and have enough puzzles bookmarked for several more lifetimes!

You'll also find lots of pictures of plants and flowers here. Many of those are from my wonderful sister: pcteacher.
