Country House in Spring jigsaw puzzle review and giveaway

Although I don’t often find the time now to sit down and do a jigsaw puzzle, I’ve always loved them ever since childhood. Nowadays it is usually only on holiday or our annual gift from a friend of a 1000 / 2000 piece jigsaw made from one of his stunning photographs. Wish I could take a decent photo.

So I was pleased to be offered the chance to review a 300 piece jigsaw of a beautiful country house in spring design.

I checked the dimensions before I started to ensure I chose a big enough surface to make it on, as I don’t possess one of those puzzle mats. Something that has been on my wishlist for a while. It was 49 x 36 cm, so would easily fit on our breakfast bar. Not a problem as we usually eat at the dining table.

I think everyone has their own method of tackling a jigsaw. I tend to work on the edge first to give me a frame for the rest of the puzzle. I then pick out easier features, so for this jigsaw, it was the chimney, the top of the roof and the bright pink flowers in the bottom right hand corner.

I forgot to time how long it took me to do, but I did it over one weekend. Occasionally son1 popped a piece in place for me as he passed by.

The pieces all fitted together well, as you would expect from a premium brand like Ravensburger. This was one of their bigger pieces range and the puzzle came with a guarantee. Not needed in this case, but great if you were to experience an issue. I can’t think of anything more frustrating than to discover you are missing a piece from a jigsaw puzzle.

I’d love to hear about your favourite jigsaw ever. Mine was a 500 piece circular one from York Castle museum that I did over and over again as a child. I can’t remember who gave it to me, as I’ve never actually visited the museum.
