Day 2 of Nancy Drew is a Clue Blog hop with MODA as our sponsor!

If I had not taken the path into medical and pharma, perhaps I would have gone
into forensic science or sleuth work. Albeit reading every book that Carolyn Keene
wrote about Nancy Drew was the reason - is anyone's guess?

I still have many copies with the sticker price of 25 cents.! 
Yep, that is all I am going to say! lol

I have always loved mystery, still do! So when I came across
Moda's fabric line of Nancy Drew, I could not reach out to them quick
enough. So here we are, for the next few days, many of us equipped with 
our magnifying glass, began our search "What will I create for this HOP?"

has been ready for months, no more delays...we are ready, 
she is ready, YOU are ready....
By the way.....

I don't know about you but I am seriously considering 
changing my name to RACHEL...
And I have got to get some more sewing, stitching, embroidering,
appliquing, ruffling...wink...

So welcome everyone, those who will be hopping, cheering and creating...
"WE" are sooooo excited...

on the side bar.... of this blog...

Here are the sleuths who will be entertaining you all today...
be sure to cheer them on....they do this for YOU!

  6. Madamme, You hit on the nose today! Love all the picks today! Great show today...Judith, Texas

  7. I really love the use of these fabrics in book totes.

  8. I wasn't able to participate, but I am very much enjoying this hop, especially searching for Carol's mystery! What a great idea!

  9. Another day of fantastic Nancy Drew projects! Great showing everyone.

  10. A lot of people have made book bags, and this fabric is so perfect for that!! Great day!

  11. Loving all the great projects! I really need to make one of those great bags to take to the library or to use for a traveling sewing bag.

  12. So many fun bags today...I may have to return to my scraps and make a bag (but maybe not before my day next week!)

  13. So many tote bags that are all Sew Useful and Sew different too.

  14. I,too, like all the book bags today. The gals are all on a good roll. Now on to tomorrow, to see what Nancy,Bess and George are up to.

  15. So many beautiful book bags today. And sow many creative women. It has been a wonderful day full of awesome projects.

  16. I love those book bags, especially that last one! I wonder how many of my old Nancy Drew books would fit in there?....

  17. I wonder if any other fabric lines have created such a buzz and inspiration. I'm so glad that Moda came out with the Nancy Drew fabrics!

    1. lovely to see this....would like to respond however no email to return your response

  18. I love the tote/purse! I think that I had at least 25 Nancy Drew books, which were only a $1.49 (or less) when I started reading them. I remember being so disappointed when they went up in price. My daughters and I are such avid readers, but they loved Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie series. I MUST but the ND fabric. Really loving seeing all the great works of art.

  19. I really like the tote bags you picked today. The book fabric is perfect for a tote bag.

  20. Thanks again! I still don't know how you handle all this. You are the best.

  21. When I first saw this fabric line, I thought "Eww. I'd never make anything with this!" But now, only two days into the hop, I'm dying to play with some! Thanks so much for all the inspiration!

  22. Another great day of Nancy Drew. Loved all of todays projects. Thanks for all that you do to pull these hops together.

  23. There have been some really great projects today.

  24. Love those projects. What a great way to highlight the individual books in the quilt.


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
