Jigsaw swap and retreat.

Last year I took part in a jigsaw swap and some of my teamies on UKS thought it would be a good idea if we did a jigsaw swap of our own. We had the swap ready to do at our team retreat in March. Lynne found us the jigsaws on her trip to Canada and posted them out to us. Kay made sure that we all knew what we were doing also making sure we knew which side of the puzzle to use and which way up too! Kay produced a really great grid for us all to follow when the day of the big swap came!

HERE we all are for the group photo.
Alli found us a great property for our long weekend.
In fact we are going back there again in October and plan to do a Christmas bunting swap.
Here is the build up to my jigsaw!

Everyone getting involved in setting up of the jigsaws ready to swap.

As always it was lovely to spend time with my team.
We have been chatting together online since 2008, when we all did a photo a day and were the 365 group. More info about that project can be found on my other blog. We have since become really great friends who enjoy meeting up when ever we can and are now known as The Crumblies!!!!
