Jig saw Jam swap

I am doing a jigsaw jam swap for a group i belong to.
The first piece is for Cindy (see blog list) and she asked for "things with wings" as her theme and with the colours turquoise,greens and golds.

This piece is for Sherry and she asked for "folk art Christmas" In reds,greens and gold....... i think- i have to say i struggled a bit with this theme but hope it's OK.

This piece is for Wendy who chose "Oriental" in blues and golds- oriental theme is one of my favourite themes.

This piece is for Viv,who chose"time" as her theme in golds and bronze's.........

This is one of my pieces and i chose a theme of "floral" in golds,browns and creams and i wanted it done in a contemporary style....I have to say it does look better in the flesh-my camera work is rubbish!
When all the pieces that i have sent out to the other 5 ladies are done and returned i will decorate a canvas and decorate it the joined up jigsaw pieces.....I love doing these and am amazed at how each individual jig saw pieces blend so well together!!!
I shall upload the finished article when it is completed but it wont be for a few weeks yet.
