A week of puzzles

Puzzles are a hobby that my husband and I started recently.  Since I have been so busy with my studies we have not been able to make them for some time.  But this Easter we have done a couple.  We took them with enthusiasm, and we finished them almost immediately.  These were a present from the Thee Wise Men (the Spanish equivalent to Santa Claus), and we just finished them:

The Italian training ship Amerigo Vespucci (500 pieces)
Yoi - Haruyo Morita (1000 pieces)

Sadness - Luis Royo (1000 pieces)
The Amerigo Vespucci we did in Christmas.  The other two we did in the course of a week (Easter break), and we are so happy how they turned out.  They are all framed and hanging as decorations in our home.  The ship is in our bathroom, and it is a considerable improvement - now it seems we have a window, although we do not.

We are still deciding which puzzle we will make next.  Here are some others that we made in the past:

La Dolorosa - Victoria Franc├ęs (1000 pieces)

Hien - Haruyo Morita (1000 pieces)
What about yourself?  Do you like puzzles?
