I was never a "math" person. Never took more than Trig. in High School and one Business Math Class in College as my required Math class. I don't do "artsy" quilts, I am more tradiitionalist. I don't like Sudoko, tried to get it, but just can't figure it out. Do crossword puzzles, though not as much now that I'm not working. I look at the NY TImes Sunday puzzle and sigh. My parents both do it in INK!!

My mom is 92 and in a nursing home. She has Alzheimers and can't remember very much about her past. She does recognize us (her children) when we visit, but that is about all. EXCEPT for crossword puzzles. She can complete just about any crossword puzzle in no time flat (unless there is any popular culture questions in it). Mom has always excelled in crossword puzzles and I am so glad that she can still do well in something!

I quilt and do jigsaw puzzles. We do the puzzels as a family during the winter months. We have a blast. We have complete shaped puzzels.(Dragons) and we have finished three d ones. Those have been the hardest plus a dozen or better regular puzzles. We try to purchase a new puzzel each year. K

Jane Wooster Scott is my favorite artist too!! What a coincidence!! Several years ago, since I love doing puzzles, my husband bought the software Brainsbreaker and every now and then, I make puzzles of JWS but directly on my internet screen - up to 500 pieces (so that the pieces are still visible). This little software is wonderful and I can even create puzzles of up to 100 pieces and send them to my little grandchildren (Spiderman and Batman are their favorites). Just love it!

Love jig-saw puzzles! Have one on the card table when I don't have a quilt on the hoop for hand-quilting.

Love jigsaw puzzles. Almost bought myself a 24,000 piece one for my Christmas present to myself but I couldn't figure out where I could put the darn thing together. It was something like 6 feet high and 18 wide. Don't quote me on the measurements, but it was wall sized.

I've loved them since I was a little girl. That's what we did before TV.
