Day 4 of Nancy Drew Blog Hop with MODA as sponsors


The sleuths are back for another week of NANCY DREW is a CLUE....
Anyone know where my extra hour went???? 

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....

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!

so be sure to check back each morning...

OUR top 2 honourable mentions today are....

This lady used a panel piece for a lovely fabric basket...
well done in the green fabric too...great use of panel blocks...

This lady incorporating some embroidery in her centre block....with the silouhette
and bright choices for borders....this makes for an ideal wall hanging...
Any N.D. lover would like this for a reminder....
keep investigating, there is always something to explore! 


Well I certainly chuckled when I saw this and read this lady's clues on how to make
this quilt not only picture perfect but also very creative... yes the use of magnifying glasses
was an ideal choice...LOVE IT!  It looks quite large...how big is it? the quilt?
