Thinking about the hexigons, again, I came upon this quote. 

"Everything worth doing is tedious, demanding and sometimes dull.  Then, before you quit remember this:

The test of a vocation is the love of the drudgery it involves.  Sometimes it's "drudgery" is more restful than it's greatest achievements."

Logan Pearsall Smith.

I will think of that as I sew these hexigons.  (I'm becoming very phillisophical in my old age.)
