A jigsaw addict spent 17 months completing one of the world's biggest puzzles.

Amanda Warrington had to painstakingly glue each of the 24,000 pieces to her living room wall as it was the only space in her home big enough to accommodate the 14ft by 5ft puzzle.

I guess whatever floats your boat.  I wouldn't have the patience.

I like the jigsaw it's got a nice picture on it. I couldn't be bothered sticking the pieces to a wall though, but then after spending so much time completing it in the first place it would be a waste to just break it up again and put it back in its box.

Tbh it's got nothing to do with discipline.

It's not like she's got a sergeant major or headmaster hovering in the background.
But yes you do need patience,dedication and a real love for jigsaws.

Her idea certainly beats wallpaper and paste and it's more pleasing to the eye.
It's a good thing she managed to fit them in all correctly.
Btw I'm sure she'll find an other jigsaw puzzle to fill that hideous bubble- wrap ceiling.
