Applique Thursday 12/20/12

Days have been so busy.  I did do applique this week, but neither of my two blocks.  Made this for our guild's BOM.  The building is our Fox Theater.  Back in the 30s, Riverside was far enough from Hollywood to be considered a small town and used to preview films to get an audience's reaction before releasing to the public.  Riversiders were the first to see Gone With the Wind!  I'll stitch the black raw edge applique pieces with black and a straight stitch.  Our BOM Queen is doing a great job with this series.  We have one left to do.

Our winner for last week's book is Auntjunifer. Unfortunately, she is a noreply-comment blog reader.  So I'm posting here in the hopes she will see this and reply with her snail mail address in a private email, so I can send her the book.  A note to readers:  If you want to win, we have to have a way to contact you. So you might want to go into your settings and set email visible in your profile.  Hope to hear from you soon!  Also, I'd like to apologize to my last two winners - their books should have gone out a long time ago, but they will be in the mail TODAY.  No more letting this depression drag me down.

Since it will be madness around here for the next ten days, I'm calling a hiatus to giveaways on Applique Thursday for a couple of weeks.  But I'd still love to see your eye candy of any kind - past, present or future - remember it's all new to me.  It will help me endure this winter fog that settles in my head.


  1. Oh really great block - very visual!!! I get down in the winter season too, particularly during cold, dark gloomy days. I'm sorry you are feeling that way, and I will pray for you to be lifted up out of it! Hugs & Blessings to you and yours, and wishes for a wonderful Christmas & prosperous New Year my friend!!!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours. I'm in awe of your applique abilities and enjoy my visits to your blog. Thanks for all the time you spend on writing your posts for your readers.
    Blessings, Marcia
