Thanks to the amazingly talented Devin who wrote ...
I took my Cross Stitch Pattern and made a Applique Quilt block. The pattern and step by step instructions are available for FREE download on my blog. I hope to create a block for each character, and end up with a handmade True Blood Quilt.
I am using the same pattern to created a Applique Quilt block of Sookie Stackhouse. I will post it soon.

This Sunday Lauren Bowles makes her ‘True Blood‘ debut as Merlotte’s newest waitress Holly Cleary. Bowles, whose credits include everything from guest starring on numerous procedurals, to starring opposite her real life half-sister Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the comedy ‘Watching Ellie,’ is thrilled she landed a longterm role on one of her favorite shows. She opened up about Holly’s secret powers, why the cast is afraid to give out spoilers, and what to order at Merlotte’s.
What I can tell you, because it’s shrouded in secrecy on this show, [is that] I am the new waitress at Merlotte’s – a single working Mom. I might have some interesting abilities that will develop as the show goes on.
There are some hints, at least judging by the books, that she might be a witch.
This is what I have been told. This is what the word on the street is. I’m not even joking. They make you sign a confidentiality agreement, ‘You can tell nothing. Don’t say a word.’ But she does have some interesting abilities that will develop.
WE WILL be talking Sunday night on Talk Blood Radio about my belief that the debate about whether True Blood fans should be reading the books is OVER and that the script writing assumes much of the time that watchers have read the freaking books (Alan Ball in EVERY single interview certainly thinks you have ) and I certainly believe you get LOTS more out of True Blood, if you have read the books than you lose! I can guarantee that!!!
I think I'll also put a copy of “Dead to the world “in the mail to him today.
Peru ( or the TB equivalent) here we come ! Haha
Team Talk Blood member , Mark Blankenship Sucker Punch for Ep 7
After delivering two exceptional segments in a row, True Blood comes closer to earth with “Hitting the Ground.” That’s not to say that the episode is bad—it’s really pretty good—but it does contains some frustrating elements.
And by “frustrating elements,” I mean, “this whole thing with Bill.”
Now in this very moment, I’m engaged with what’s happening to him. By viciously attacking Sookie in the back of that van—despite the fact that he seemed to be unaware of what he was doing—Bill has gotten himself ostracized from the human community that means so much to him. By helping Sookie kill Lorena (Bye-bye, diva! We’ll miss you!), he’s only furthering his alienation from his fellow vampires, whom he’s already been pissing off or avoiding for quite some time.
In other words, Bill has become a creature without a country.
And the show is suggesting this will make him an evil bastard. You noticed, I’m sure, that after drinking Sookie’s fairy blood (more on that in a minute), he is kinda-sorta impervious to sunlight. And then when Sookie is in magic fairy dreamland, her magic fairy bestie tells her that Bill is going to steal her light. And then dreamland gets dark.
Team Talk Bllood member, Becca Wilcott's book: Truly, Madly, Deadly: The Unofficial True Blood Companion buy it today!

Truly, Madly, Deadly: The Unofficial True Blood Companion by Becca Wilcott
This companion to the wildly popular HBO series True Blood is at once an introductory guide to the first two seasons of the vampire saga and a treasure trove for the legions of true believers who follow the show. Created by Alan Ball, the Oscar-winning writer of American Beauty and creator of HBO's cult ensemble sensation Six Feet Under, True Blood surpassed The Sopranos as the largest-ever audience for a cable show at more than 12.4 million viewers a week. It has revitalized the career of Oscar-winner Anna Paquin and has introduced international audiences to Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård, and Ryan Kwanten and an extensive, award-winning cast. Exclusive interviews, in-depth biographies of cast members, an episode guide, and behind-the-scenes anecdotes flesh out the fictional characters as well as the actors who inhabit the roles. Some of the underlying themes of the series—such as the politics of race, sexuality, and gender—are explored, and chapters on paranormal phenomena and the literary and cinematic histories of vampires are also included. In addition, this analysis offers an introduction to author Charlaine Harris, whose popular Sookie Stackhouse novels were the inspiration for the television series, as well as a discussion of the role of the fan base and social media in the phenomenal rise of this television sensation.
Book sake does a nice review here
These bookmarks are deliciously evil and look like melted red wax or blood, depending on your bent. Made from silicone, each one is hand poured by a Japanese artist who may be part vampire for all we know. (We have a don't ask, don't tell policy about blood sucking.) Every one of these is totally unique and one of a kind. Hook it over your favorite book to hold your place and show off your love of O Negative.
- Bookmark made of red silicone
- Each bookmark is a totally unique shape and hand poured by the artist himself
- Is it melting red wax or blood? (We don't recommend licking it to find out.)
- Perfect gift for that girl you know who is obsessed with that series of books about vampires
- Imported from Japan
