I need some blogger help

I had a noreply-comment blog email that I think is junk.  Stating it wanted to grab our RSS feed... So I know I do not want that but can't figure out how to block or stop it.  I don't find anything strange but I am so new to this blogging thing.

All help is appreciated...

Merry Christmas

Baby Bricks Update

All 11 stacks are sewn and put together with the vertical sashing strips.  Now I just need to cut the borders and get them sewn in place and my "Stacked Baby Bricks" quilt top will be complete. will have to wait until we return from Christmas with family.   As usual I'll make more YoYo's while we are on the road.  I still have hope that someday I'll actually have a yoyo quilt.  I've been making YoYo's on and off for 3 years and only have to make somewhere around 200 - 300 more and I'll have enough.  Then "all I have to do" is sew them all together!   I even have 1 row of "blocks" sewn together - did that so I could see what it would look like.

Time is slipping away..

Where has the time gone......I haven't posted much lately or even accomplished much.  I am on week three or is it four of sinus infection and on a second round of shots and medications.  I have not even sewn anything in two weeks...  I normally sew something everyday.

I hope you have all been able to get your projects finished or almost finished in time for Christmas.  I am way behind.    Hopefully I will feel better soon.  Tomorrow starts my long vacation.. I will be able to spend time with family from Indiana. I hate we only get to see each other once a year.    Maybe I will get caught up on my sewing and on Easy Street.  I still have Step 4 to start and Step 5 comes out in the morning...

Merry Christmas and happy sewing.

Stacked Baby Bricks

Here goes...I'm a newbie to blogging.  Angela has been kind (and patient) enough to help me get started. Yesterday afternoon I sewed 360 baby bricks into pairs of 2.  Took me 3 hours but then it only took 30 minutes more to sew 20 pair into a stack of 40 bricks.   I already had 2 stacks made and will need a total of 11 for my quilt..  The pic shows a completed Stacked "Big Bricks" along side a single stack of "Baby Bricks".  This is one of the optional projects the Pickle Patch Quilters will be working on at our Spring 2013 retreat.  The Big Bricks only contain 24 bricks per stack but I want my "Baby Bricks" quilt to be longer.

Easy Street Step 4

I hope you all have an productive sewing I'm off to get ready for work.....

I must read instruction more closely.

At quilting last night we were discussing the Easy Street Mystery, I have all of Steps 1 and 2 ready (except cutting off dogears) but I completely skipped over the section of Step 2 that said to cut 64 rectangles.. So I will be doing that before church tonight. I guess I just got in such a hurry and was too full of excitement that I was caught up and waiting for the next Step. Hmmm maybe I better go back and read some more, lol. Just in case I missed something else..

Happy Sewing
