I Have Built Some Very Large Puzzles
Back in my younger days my favorite hobby was building jigsaw puzzles. Hubby and I set up a sheet of plywood on our living room coffee table and it became our game area. When we had a few minutes we would stop to seek out a couple more pieces to add into the developing image.
I have to say that it was one of he most relaxing hobbies I have ever participated in. I still crave picking up a large one to begin once again but can't talk my husband into giving up the living space it would take. Maybe one day. I plan to keep trying to convince him.

Do you build jigsaw puzzles in your spare time?
Susanna Duffy from Melbourne Australia on April 04, 2014:
That huge jigsaw puzzle that covers a wall is sensational!
webregency on March 27, 2014:
I never let my brain to rest, so i'm building jigsaw puzzles every time. Unfortunately i can't spend much money on real pieces of puzzles, that's why i'm playing online (:
Here is a great source of puzzles online: http://jigbo.com/
CaztyBon on October 03, 2013:
I use to love to work on jigsaw puzzles, but it has been a few years. I will have to check out the sites you listed they sound like fun. Thanks!
Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on October 01, 2013:
@grannysage: Yep, I have to chase hubby off the couch or off the table, so I can set one up.
Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on October 01, 2013:
@squidoopets: I will check them out and thank you.
Arod17 on June 27, 2013:

A very interesting and informative lens. Thanks for sharing.

@Lady Lorelei: I was visiting my daughter who had been in a major car accident. She was and is ok, thank goodness, the vehicle was totaled and it was a miracle she walked away. Back again to this lens to bless and suggest Sailor Moon online puzzles :D
norma-holt on January 01, 2013:
A new blessing on this lovely lens and may you have a wonderful, successful and happy 2013. Hugs

@squidoopets: Every time I see you it seems you are at a different location. What the heck are you doing at the Edmonton airport girl?
Darcie French from Abbotsford, BC on November 11, 2012:
I don't do jigsaw puzzles, but my hubby and child love them. Hi from Edmonton Airport, dear LadyM :)
grannysage on October 26, 2012:
I love to build puzzles but don't have the room. You just made my day because I didn't know you could build them on-line. So if I never make any more lenses I can blame you because I'll be spending all my time building puzzles, lol.
JJNW from USA on October 06, 2012:
We need a new one for when fall weather hits.
Anthony Godinho from Ontario, Canada on September 03, 2012:
Jigsaw puzzles are a lot of fun and make great gifts for kids which can be educational and fun at the same time. It's great for almost all ages!
Virginia Allain from Central Florida on August 19, 2012:
I used to love putting jigsaw puzzles together with my dad. He said his grandmother put them together while she was in the nursing home. She got bored with the same puzzle, so put it together from the back with no picture to help her.
CruiseReady from East Central Florida on August 19, 2012:
We do one every year at our family reunion week. It's just one of our standard activities. We really enjoy it, too!
Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on August 19, 2012:
@BeyondRoses: Jigsaw puzzles are nice because they are a relaxing hobby that you can leave and come back to whenever you like. I like just stopping by the puzzle whenever I walk by it, putting in a few pieces, and then coming back to it in the evening when I have more free time.
Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on August 19, 2012:
@Heidi Vincent: Me too. The largest jigsaw puzzle I have attempted is a 3000 piece puzzle but my favorite size of puzzle to work on is a 2000 piece.
Heidi Vincent from GRENADA on August 12, 2012:
I LOVE jigsaw puzzles!
BeyondRoses on August 12, 2012:
I haven't did a jigsaw puzzle in years, but have many fond memories of them. I remember when my son use to do the ones with all the tiny pieces, and glue them to make pictures. And in her later years, my Mother loved doing puzzles to keep her mind active.
banapple on August 12, 2012:
I have not done a jigsaw puzzle since I was younger. Kinda makes me want to go get one. I used to love doing jigsaw puzzles.
pawpaw911 on August 12, 2012:
The nice thing about jigsaw puzzles is that the whole family can participate.
PaigSr from State of Confusion on August 12, 2012:
Puzzles helped me get through high school and college. It sometimes helped to take a break and figure out the puzzles. Then go back and covered the studying.
wondering-tharpe on August 08, 2012:
I have many puzzles I have done over the years which I hang on my walls each time i move I get a new one. I also play online and use one on Big Fish called Jigs@w 2. I love it as it allows me to use any picture on my computer and I can adjust the amount of pieces and the chaos of those pieces. It also aloows me to add any song,midi, or mp3 file stored on my comp to it and I control if it continually plays or one time only. I love this jigsaw lens and the different puzzles and sites given. TY so much. My favorite puzzles are nature scenes and Native American scenes.
norma-holt on August 06, 2012:
Wow, great lens and nice resouces. I can't do normal puzzles now because of my neck but these look great. Thank you for introducing me to them. Featured on Blessed by Skiesgreen 2012-2. Hugs

I like the idea of the challenge of a jigsaw puzzle and usually can't pass by one that's set up without stopping to find a few pieces. I can't imagine the space it would take to work on your 24,000 piece monster puzzle, whew! I didn't know there are free on line jigsaw puzzles to work, technology is a wonder!
Lee Hansen from Vermont on July 27, 2012:
I love jigsaw puzzles. I like to make them, too. Check out Jigzone.com where you can upload your own photos and art to make jigsaw puzzles, or you can choose and solve many different puzzles. I used to store my jigsaw puzzle on a big piece of cardboard and slide it under the bed between sessions ...
WriterJanis2 on July 27, 2012:
I do, especially during the winter months with my kids.
Anthony Altorenna from Connecticut on July 25, 2012:
There's often a work-in-progress jigsaw puzzle spread out on our dining room table (does anyone actually use their dining room for dining?) but I haven't tried working an online puzzle. Very interesting!
Mona from Iowa on July 24, 2012:
I love puzzle just never enough time. :)
FlynntheCat1 on July 23, 2012:
No! You've discovered my weakness! Goodbye free time!
youngKwon on July 23, 2012:
That's really HUGE ! I don't usually do jigsaw, but want to try that one!
JoleneBelmain on July 23, 2012:
Even if I had the kids and Dave and I working on the 32,000 piece puzzle I think that it would take us forever to put that jigsaw puzzle together.
Lorelei Cohen (author) from Canada on July 23, 2012:
@LiteraryMind: Thank you so much for stopping by my online jigsaw puzzle article so quickly after it was published. I find jigsaw puzzles very relaxing. I used to keep it set up on a board on my coffee table and would pop in a few pieces whenever I went by.
Ellen Gregory from Connecticut, USA on July 23, 2012:
I haven't lately-- but when I do, I find it relaxing -- sometimes frustrating but in a relaxing way. Great idea for a lens.
