That is what I should do Cat Lady.  We don't have to go to the VA nearly as often as we used to, but it would be something easy to take with me when we do have to go.

That is a lot of flowers to be appliquéd down.  Are your blocks about 6" square?

I took some papers and cut fabric to the VA when we went today for DH's appointments.  He had about an hour and a half lag time between two of them.  But when we finished the one, we went down and he checked in for the next one.  I had just started basting my fifth hexie when he was called back.  We were in the car and headed home before his last appointment was even scheduled to start.  So I did not get as far as I had hoped.  Still, that is why I have been working on my GFG forever, it passes the time at medical appointments.

I still see mine daily as it is on my dresser, but I have not gotten back into it, hopefully I will soon. Very pretty flower, Vilma!

Very pretty Vilma.  I keep forgetting to get mine out & work on them at night.

I have made 100 GFG and now I am appliqueing them to a beige background.  I got 20 appliqued to the beige background, 80 to go. 

I am thinking that my next EPP project will be POTC or Milifiori with 1" Honeycomb Hexies.  I got 200 Paper Pieces 1" Honeycomb Hexies.  Yes,  I only buy 200 so I don't get carried away with a big project.  Just planning to make a small wall hanging. 

I am saving my GFG 1" paper template, since I am planning to cut them into half inch template and make a small wall hanging project.  Just thinking.....

I will convey your compliments. Patricia she is not very good with being online so often does not respond to questions. She has been sharing this progress for over a year and has also been sharing finishes of bags that she designs. I loved the pattern and thought people here may also like to see it. Perhaps some of us will get inspired and get our wips out! It is one of my resolutions for next year.

It is gorgeous! I know she will be glad when it is completed so she can just admire it.

Beyond fantastic! Thanks for sharing it with us, Sobana!
