Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

First I made  these two little flowers for my blue garden

These three are going to be planted in my friendship flower garden

These are beauties I've received from my friends in Inchy hexagon flower swap group which I've joined in July

Finally I found some orphan hexies and made a cover ( pyjama) for my faithful Heidi, that's the name I gave to my sewing machine  which is from Switzerland

Stay tuned, tomorrow I'm going to show you some more wonderful pictures

I have two questions for you:
1. Do you love swaps?
2.Do you love mug rugs?

If is you answer "YES" , then this is a post for you.
Oh, yes I adore swaps and this little masterpieces called mug rug.
I love to make big quilts, some of them were really huge, but making this cute little things are kind of relaxation for me.And here is a result of getting these two words together:


First one is made by Anneliese from Ireland

and the second one came from Ireland too, but from the Northern part. It was Karen who made it

They even match together, don't they. And both girls made a wonderful needle cases for me because it was a  "goodie" swap (organized by Susan from Fluffy Sheep Quilting )

And finally here are mug rugs I've made and sent to my new friends  Benta

and Janet

As a goodie, I made a journal cover for each

My dear hexies got a new home;  I bought them this lovely wooden box with glass cover and 18 departments.
It looks a little dull now, but I'm going to give it some colour (pink perheps?) and maybe few flowers? How about some hexie flowers in corners? No, I would not keep anything else in this box except hexies, I think I would never stop making them. After this one (Friendship flowers quilt) with white background, I have plans for one with dark background, the one with blue flowers I've already started, then I have my Inchy club hexies...
Yes, my name is Simona and I'm addicted, hexie  addicted

Hexie post without hexies? Here they are: our "Mum" Karen sent me some more scraps  and upper flower is made  from  them. Two lower are combos from all over , including some from my stash.

Wish you all a  nice hexie day !
