Mother’s Day Puzzling with Wentworth

For Mother’s Day this year  Wentworth wooden puzzles have created a beautiful Mother’s Day Jigsaw puzzle and they kindly sent me my very own to have a look at.

The With Love Jigsaw is £29 for a 250 piece puzzle. Now 250 pieces may not sound like many but boy is this thing tough. I’ve been working on it for days now, grabbing moments as and when I can and I have only just completed the edges!
