Puzzle Pieces

I've been looking in the CS for a jigsaw to do here over half term. Specifically I wanted a picture of Paris including a pre-conflagration Notre Dame. No success, but my friend kindly offered to lend me one of her puzzles with an alternative Parisian scene. Then I found this [new and unopened] Puzzle Mat for £3.50 in the Cancer Research Shop.
I can do my puzzle on the felt sheet, then roll it up and put it away when Rosie arrives. Mary's Paris jigsaw came in a box of four [Paris, Berlin, Melbourne and San Francisco] There are four separate bags in the box. 
So I started Paris on Saturday and finished it yesterday. But here's the problem ... there appears to be one piece missing. I didn't open the box till I sat down here in the lounge. We've hunted and hunted but cannot find it on the floor, down the side of the chair, anywhere.
There's nothing for it, I shall have to complete all the other three just in case the missing piece is in one of the other bags. 
I do hope it turns up. Feeling guilty that I might have lost part of the puzzle which my generous friend so kindly lent me... 


  1. Oh no! That's so annoying! And the not knowing if you lost it or if it somehow was lost at your friend's house unknowingly is irritating. The mat is a great idea!

  2. We love jigsaws. I had a Gibsons with a missing piece which I knew we had not lost as we empty the bag into a tray to sort. They happily replaced the jigsaw.

  3. Oh, no! I hope you find the missing piece! Now you definitely have to work on the other puzzles, just in case the missing piece is in one of the other bags!

  4. Update: I did the Rome one last night, and it was complete, but sadly no extra piece in the bag!

  5. That puzzle mat was very smart! I hope you find the missing piece, but I am sure your friend will forgive you ;)
