    I am currently piecing a bargello quilt and it feels like I am putting together a puzzle, (which I love).

    The problem at my house is that the cats love to play with the puzzle pieces. They can destroy it quicker than I can put it together.

    I am always looking for good puzzle websites. Could you let us know what site you use. They take up a lot less room than having to set up one.

    Jigidi is a great site for online jigsaw puzzles. I found out about it from this board. I race through the puzzles to try to get the message, "You are the fastest person to solve this puzzle." I guess I am a little competitive.

    I have a really cute antique game table that I leave an in progress puzzle on it all the time. My DH had a piece of plexiglass cut to the exact size of the table, rounded the edges and corners, and put little plastic feet on each corner. We keep the puzzle covered, have even used it as an extra dining table, and the dinner guests wanted to work on the puzzle.

    We have a puzzle called "Tapestry Cat" going. So far only the corners are done. The pieces look so much alike I'm hoping it gets done!

    My dearest friend in Arizona does puzzles all the time. I enjoy doing them online.

    I really like that puzzle, it's very pretty. I keep some around the house to do when the power goes out. Ice storms, tornados, and straight line winds can make our power go out for days even weeks, and this gives us something to do. I also don't have room to keep out all the time. Maybe one of these days I will (if that oldest son ever decides to move out).
