Happenings at Brookhollow Lane

Someone had a birthday last week. My oldest son had a cake delivered, since he couldn't be here. It was a really nice day.
 I did get the upcycled sheet quilt top done. I also added a sheet binding. So excited about crafting right now!
 This cute plaque was included in a gift basket and was made by my friend Celeste at Southern Day Dreams. She spoiled me on my birthday. So fun to have a blogging friend that lives close to me. I think it looks so pretty with the pale colors in the quilt top. I'll share the progress on it as I go. I'll be machine quilting-it's been so long since I made a quilt, I want to keep it super simple.
 I did get one hexie finished. I think I'll call it a mug rug. I sandwiched the hexie,  backing and batting and sewed and then turned it out. I did a little machine quilting around the hexie edges.
 Piles of hexies to use up.

 Went antiquing last week and found this cute and colorful crochet. That will be going on the craftroom wall.
I'll be taking a blog break. We are taking our youngest son to Graduate school in Montreal. It's a combination road trip and flying  to get him settled in his new school and new country. So excited to see Montreal, and the weather has got to be better then it is in Texas right now. See you when we get back.
