Something I wanted to show the Sampler Guild - Free Jigsaw to Download

I was hoping against all hope to be able to get away and meet up with some dear friends from the Sampler Guild yesterday, but the pressure of work on the book is now very great - we have entered the 24/7 sleepless zone as we come up to the deadline for the printer. It is a strange tunnel to be in, driven by the importance of publishing a simple book, when there is the distressing news of the Japanese Earthquake following on the heels of the Christchurch Earthquake, thousands of dispossessed refugees in Libya, and people struggling for survival. It feels something of a cop-out to simply click a button and send money off to the Red Cross so, hopefully, they can get humanitarian aid quickly to where it is needed most. But that is, frankly, all I can do. And maybe all many of us can do. When you download this jigsaw, or any of the free downloads on the blog, kindly give a thought to clicking on the Red Cross button you see at the top of the right hand column of the blog, this will take you to their official site where you can make a small donation. I am sure every penny matters and will be put to good use.
So here is the full picture of the lovely tea-cloth which I was going to take along to show the Sampler Guild members - the strawberry plant detail can be found half way along the left hand side. The cloth measures approximately 1 metre square and is so beautifully stitched, I wish you could see it in person. Click on the image for a picture to keep. I hope you enjoy this free jigsaw. However, sadly, this is not going to work for Mac users. Instructions: Click here next Click Open, then click the .EXE file name and click Run, when you see the jigsaw puzzle, click Play Too many pieces? Try clicking on Trays on the top tool bar to create any number of resizeable trays to sort your pieces ........ you can also click the Cheat button and watch the puzzle solve itself! The software is by David Gray designer of Jigsaws Galore - the powerful jigsaw player and creator for Windows.
