Day 7 of Nancy Drew Blog hop with Moda as our sponsor


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....

  1. I have always loved Nancy Drew. Being named Nancy was part of that of course! Now my eldest daughter is a big fan too. She is getting a Nancy Drew quilt.

  2. Thank goodness there is one more day with Nancy Drew...I'm not quite ready to see this hop end. There have been so many delightful and inspiring projects! Thanks for creating another fantastic creative adventure! :)

  3. Rosemary B here:
    Oh my I have missed a lot but as usual, the top picks are so inspiring every day, Missie Samm.
    I am taking my laptop to the hospital tomorrow and hopefully I can visit all of the blogs and view the creativity of everyone.

  4. I love that quillow! I have one my Mom made for me as I was leaving for college 20 years ago--perfect for the plane too.

  5. Love that red quilt. It is gorgeous.

  6. I love the tiny books all around the edge of that quilt--beautiful! So many fun ideas today. :O)

  7. Oh Madame Samm, Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment!!

  8. Another fun day blog hopping! As all days I marvel at the creativity of quilters. I will be sorry to see it end but ready to hop again next week, when I have a horse in the race.

  9. Another great day of sleuthing!

  10. A pouch with hidden pouches! How great is that!

  11. You did a great job Madame Samm I just love the quillow and it makes a wonderful pillow too. Thanks for all the fun.

  12. There were great clues and mysteries on this hop today. I enjoyed all from the bookbag, to the visit to the libary and the mystery of the finger print. All was quite a show today.

  13. Another fun day with these great fabrics.

  14. What a wonderful day of Nancy Drew! Actually everyday has been full of great creations!

  15. Another great hopping day! Oh, now I might have to work on a Nancy Drew quilt, quillow, a purse, Hexie pillow, oh they better make more of this material! *hehe* Too
    Many great projects to make just one!

  16. Love the projects today. Hadn't thought of quillos in years. Now on to Friday.

  17. So many original and creative ways people have used the Nancy Drew fabrics. Love them all.

  18. Another day with awesome and lovely projects. I have been busy arranging our both in a sewing festival, and could go through the postings until late in the evening. But it was worth doing that inspite I am so tired and have to go to bed.
    Tomorrow the last day and I will not have time until late in the evening to go through the posts , but it is worth waiting for.

  19. Such great ideas! I am enjoying the projects each day. The Nancy Drew fabric is wonderful.

  20. I have to vote for the quilt and pillow pair. The red just sets off the blocks and using the books for the border is great design, in my book!

  21. more fun stuff. Love that qwillow!

  22. I had missed these sum up the day posts! i like your choices.

  23. Another great group of ladies. I loved sleuthing around and admiring all the wonderful projects.

  24. YESTERDAY I had a thought: "I wonder if there is such a thing as Nancy Drew fabric?" And so I googled and found it. And TODAY I found your blog. I am a lifelong Nancy fan. I have a craft business and one of my most popular products is the Nancy Drew journals I make (out of Nancy books that people have actually thrown out or given away, if you can believe that).


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