There is still room for YOU
 sign up today....




Today registration begins for our NEW YEARS BLOG HOP 2013

NANCY DREW IS A CLUE! 

The first one of the year and CAROL from justletmequilt
will be hosting and cheering you on...
YOU may remember her from hosting our Bowls on Borders.
She was absolutely awesome in organizing women from
all over the world, she had to face language barriers, our largest
gathering ever and she did it with composure and finesse.


And she threatened me....NO MORE GODIVA
cookies if I did not choose her...
What could I say, I love Godiva cookies...
( 1 a day with my coffee, a box last -well until
the next one arrives) lol 

ANYWAY as I was saying....There will
be many CLUES during the lead up to this
blog hop...Pay attention, it could mean
lovely surprises for YOU and YOU and YOU.

What is expected for this blog hop...

#1 YOU can make anything you like, no limits, no sizes,  no unlimited creativity..
as long as you use NANCY DREW FABRIC from MODA,
YOU are in. You can add other fabrics, but NANCY DREW MODA
must be in your project. 

( I am told the collection will be in your local quilt shops
by the end of NOVEMBER) 

 #2  Order some material soon. Or get out to your local quilt shops
and let them know you will need some Nancy DREW! 

I have a couple online shops who will be getting some very soon! 



#2 All those who will be participating  must
 A) add button to their blog from acceptance to completion of hop. 

( code is on the side bar at the top)

B) Must have their post up my midnight EST
C) Must turn off their Word Verification, just for the day if they can
D) Must add lists of fellow sleuths to their blogs
so everyone can find them as easily as they found YOU.

#3 Connect with Carol here if interested by NOVEMBER 25th DEADLINE
( although I think we will fill up very quickly, according to emails already) 

#4 For those who have NO blogs, we have one 
for YOU. So we will accept 15 ONLY for this blog hop!

TAKE GREAT PHOTOS......
YOU will be eligible for GREAT PRIZES! 


Here is my #1 Clue of what I am making.
YES it is paper pieced...( surprised? ) that is not the clue. lol

 child there is no doubt you would be doing this"



Some of you may have seen this already from our last blog hop..
but you can make some coin purses.

  15. Rosemary B here: *snicker*
    I did not read any of these books. Maybe I should go to the library and see if they have any.
    You might find this very shocking, but... I was too hyper to sit and read. I was too busy riding my bike down grassy hills. My oldest sister did read these books though. I know she liked them.

    1. They were really hot when we were kids...as I was in France my Nan and Mumm would always send me 2 hard covers ( no soft covers in those days)
      and the nuns would take them from my room to read them...of course nothing was ever said or anyone accused...but mysteriously, they would always be returned and they would ask me about key highlights lol. They were great...YOUR sister would possibly love a gift of Nancy Drew...

  18. I just bopped off an "I want in" note to Carol. Ever since you first mentioned a Nancy Drew theme I have been anxiously awaiting sign ups -- I didn't care what it was gonna be! :) I read a few of these growing up and my daughter read them all. I'll have to pick one and read again to prepare my creative juices.
