Well, what a naughty girl I've been, neglecting my blog for so long!!! There's always so many other things that need doing, like CJ's, atc's, inchies and now twinchies!!! In between scrapping I also have to fit in my lace making, cross stitch (I'm doing a round robin at the moment!), and knitting!!!

What has prompted me here today is that I have just finished the latest jigsaw swap on UKS. I've just taken piccies of all the pieces, and thought I would post them here rather than on our thread, so that if anyone didn't want to see their piece till the end, they could avoid it!! so, here goes!!

This is Gill's waterfall piece. It gave me the most problems and was left till last, but I am quite happy with the outcome!! I actually had to do it twice, as the first time I stuck it on the wrong way up! Not best pleased!!!!!

This is Jayne's woodland. Her criteria included 'green man' and as I hadn't heard of that before I googled it and was quite fascinated by what I found, so I went with it!!!!

This is Annie's birds!! Wasn't sure what to do until I found the branch and then it came together!!

This is Sheila's 'Vintage'. Sorry I didn't turn this the right way round. The actual piece is definitely right - promise!!!

This is Tracy's 'Opulance' This again is sideways on, but correct in real life!!!

This is Leigh's 'Egypt'. Enjoyed doing this as I love Egyptian themes too. The middle bit is decoupaged which I like (as long as it's die cut!!!)

This is Julie's 'China'. The main problem with this was the difference between China and other 'Oriental' embellishments! Also not being sure if the background paper is the right way up! Sorry Julie if it's wrong!!!

This is Annette's 'Lizards' Wasn't sure what to do on this, but then inspiration came and I was quite pleased with the finished piece. Had to be good after seeing what she had done for my piece!!!

And this is my 'Christmas' piece!! I started with this piece to get in the swing of it and am quite happy with it!!

This is all my pieces put together! Can't wait now to having all my bits back and then I will show you what it looks like!!!

What a fab idea for a swap - not seen one of these before! I particularly like your green man and Egyptian pieces although they all look great, well done on tackling such a variety of themes!

oooo I haven't seen this type of swap either and am intrigued!!!

All the pieces are truly lovely but have to say that the Egyptian one stands out for me. Well done Paddy on using your blog again XXX
