Day 37/100, week 6 #100hexies100days2017 dots&stripes. I missed days 35&36 but will catch up tomorrow. Do you know that I don't like stripes! The only thing I like with stripes on is lighthouse!

My last finished quilt, day 18 in #greatbritishquilter. It's my rainbow quilt Rainbow Memories🌈 I've created all seven paper pieced patterns in #quiltassistant . It has 705 tiny buttons and binding made from #selvages. And it's going to be shown on Scottish Quilt Championships in Edinburgh next weekend. I'm super happy I managed to finish it! πŸ™Œ I think most thanks are to my husband πŸ’• He was cheering my up when I was going to throw it away and when I almost fell asleep sewing on 500th button 😴 
I've blogged about it - link in my profile

Day 34/100 big&small in #100hexies100days2017 Do you see little Wally on my sewing machine? I have that sticker from few months because having Wally's fan in the house means you have Wally everywhere 😊

Day 16 #greatbritishquilter My favourite sewing project. It's #totebag with #lighthouse. I made it from IKEA sofa cushion cover bought for 50p πŸ˜€ Sewing was so easy as I didn't make lining just overlocked raw edges. It still looks great after a year of daily use. It was a gift for my husband and it has additional story about our 3 years old betraying my secret sewingπŸ˜‰
Thank you @sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns for this month! I love the idea to get to know more about quilters around us!

My whole #thimblescollection. It's not big and I think it would rather be something like a "memory box" from places we visited 🌍
@mlptabb2 now I will be waiting for your collection 😊

#greatbritishquilter month, day 11 how do I take my tea β˜•
My little #hexie with my favourite big cup with a dog! When my kids are helping to prepare breakfast or dinner they are choosing cups for everyone in our family. They always tell: doggy cup is for mammy 🐩 I like big cups! We drink a lot of tea so we often make mixed tea (black and fruit) in big pot. In Poland we drink black tea withouth milk and also any other fruit or herbal tea, but I prefer the black one with sugar 🍰😊
Day 28/100 #100hexies100days2017 another red #hexie with my little stash for #greatbritishquilter month. I don't have many fabrics as I usually buy them when my new quilt plan is ready. My last wish could be orange or yellow fabric to brighten my stash πŸ’›πŸ’› Thank you @sewfoxymama for another week of fun! πŸ’›πŸ’›
Day 27/100 #100hexies100days2017 another red #hexie. I don't know why I have so many scraps in red 😡 
My wish would be magnetic pin bowl, but as it's not handmade I will see if my husband really reads what I'm writing here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜
