Thanks so much, gnees. :-)))

Very nice puzzle. Thank you.

I solved your small version last night, and I loved it! And boxes are boxes, and decorated boxes are decorated boxes, a logical next step, and it would be ridiculous for me to say that I owned that idea!!! Look at how many people posted swirls long before I started making mine--that never stopped me from doing it! Of course we are all influenced, and many times I've posted a comment that acknowledges where I got the idea, but I felt no compunction about taking the idea and making it my own. We all learn from and inspire each other!

Really enjoyed this Pat. I recently posted puzzles called "little boxes" and i have just realised that it is very like the Christmas Presents one you did last week. It must have been subconsciously on my mind when I made mine. Hope you don't think I was just copying your idea! I do try to develop my own, but I suppose we are all influenced by others in some way.

Fabulous, thanks Pat - and I didn't get lost on the way, but did stop a few times to enjoy the view :~)

I'm so glad you enjoyed working it, your reverence. (I used Google to find out the correct way to address a mother superior. The other way would be Reverand Mother 67...). Thanks! :-)))

Thanks. That was a great puzzle to do.
Challenging, yet interesting. Thank you

Thanks so much--it was lots of fun to draw, because I did it almost as a game. I started in the upper right corner, and tried to make connecting lines of the same color without crossing over another color. I wanted the patterns to be unique, but balanced, and to have some extend further than others, as if the person using that color was able to place more pieces successfully. I thought that there was a game like that, so I Googled it by asking for "a game where you try to connect pieces across the board", and it actually gave me an answer--Hex.

I think that there are probably other games, too--even Connect 4 is the same basic idea...

It's always fun when you play against yourself--you can change every color's "moves" to accommodate what you want! LOL!
