Thank you, Cathy, for your comment on my half color wheel. It was a pleasant experience to work on something smallish that didn't stress my shoulders or my wrists although I did find myself getting impatient at times.

I keep thinking that jigsaw puzzles are more fun than quilting these days but then I keep searching for small quilting kits on Etsy; I confess that quilting is a very hard  habit to break.

Thanks also for posting something that is of general interest. I have put Retreat chatter on "Ignore" and so the forum seems to be  sleeping  zzz  for those of us who are out of that loop.

Below is a picture of what I was working on while a passenger in the car.  Let me tell you, it's impossible to show the whole thing!  But this is a portion of the vine I am applique.  

There are 4 corners with 2 segments each for a total of 8 segments. I was able to finish 1 complete segment today ..  7 more to go!

Working like that certainly makes you a very good passenger. There is no "Are we there yet?" kind of nonsense coming from you while your eyes are on the job of doing such careful stitching.

I'm in awe.

I get horribly carsick if I take my eyes off the horizon.

After settling for the evening. I was able to finish another segment of vines, so I have one corner finished. I'm pleased.  These vines are the background for leaves and flowers that I haven't thought of yet.

When I'm tired of working on vines, I also have prepped hexies to work on.  Instead of Grandmother's Flower Garden unit, these are simple 4-hexie units.  

I have a cute little box that holds my hexie supplies.

The item on the left is a tray that fits inside the box.  These are 1" hexies.

Is that thousands of hexies available for you to "play" with? 

I would be paralyzed with indecision.

I am sure one you think of them they will be great!

Can't get back to my photo to add text. I am back on the longarm again today working on the dark stars in the center of the light areas. 2 rows done 7 to go. Then I need to finish the feathers on the edges and do a feather all around the border.

I started the last side of the binding boxed square queen  sized quilt. Hope to finish today. 

Also want to prep a few more labels.
