Guiness World record!!

Jigsaw puzzle collector Georgina Gil Lacuna receives her world record certificate
In the mountain resort of Tagaytay City, Philippines, Georgina Gina Gil Lacuna keeps more than 1,000 jigsaw puzzles – all completed by her over a little more than a quarter-century.

Ms. Lacuna, whose puzzles are on display at the inn, now holds a rare honor: crowned the Guinness World Records holder for the world’s largest collection of jigsaw puzzles.
Ms. Lacuna’s daily routine  involves piecing together a puzzle – or five. She has completed 1, 030 jigsaws, and is working on Keith Haring's Double Retrospect. By the time she finishes this in February, Guinness will bestow upon her the record for building the biggest jigsaw puzzle in existence in the world. The puzzle has 32,000 puzzle pieces and is 17 feet long and 6 feet wide. About one-eighth of the puzzle has been completed.
