Making Progress on my "Forever" Hexie Project

I have been diligently working on my "forever" hexie project. These are my latest two finished segments.
I worked on the hexie project at my last retreat (in Nashville). I added some of the newest finished segments to the large piece. The Nashville retreat turned out to be a good place to do that, because (this time) I had a whole table to spread the big piece onto. Adding these segments to the big piece is NOT a good "on-the-go" project because the main piece is getting so large. The individual  segments themselves, however, are. I'll be making a trek to Florida in the near future and plan to work on some segments in the car on the drive down and back. I need to do some basting, because I'm just about out of white hexies. I sure hope I get lots done.
This is what it looked like at Show & Tell. It is getting so big now that I'm having trouble pinning it up onto my design wall.
What are you working on during these dreary winter days?

This Hexie is a Monster. Quite a handsome beast I must say. I would imagine that it feels good to be this far along. It is looking like a quilt. Bravo.

That's beautiful! It looks huge, too. How much more is there to do?
