The question arises - is assembling jigsaw puzzles a hobby or a craft?
We leave aside the question, seriously addressed in Europe recently, as to
whether or not assembling jigsaw puzzles is a sport - there's enough pressure in
this world without being timed as to how quickly one can assemble a puzzle,
We only know that we love doing jigsaw puzzles, and that they've been a great
source of entertainment for us. Herewith, some
