Get a Clue with Nancy Drew

Hello and Welcome!
Today is my day on the Nancy Drew Blog Hop and my first blog hop EVER!  I have to tell you that I have been very excited since Madame Sam announced this hop!
Thank you Madame Samm and Carol for cheering us on. 

Let us begin our "Mystery Tour"!

I stopped at the library because I needed some Nancy Drew Books!  I found this cute little coin purse, made from Madame Samm's pattern!
Next, I found this Nancy Drew Book Bag.  It was made to hold several Nancy Drew Books!
I made this little fabric basket that can be used on the nightstand.

As I walked around town looking for clues, I found this lovely quilt and pillow laying on a nice bench.  The quilt blocks have corner squares sewn on the upper right and lower left of each 5" charm pack square.  The backing is the book fabric.  Some lucky little girl would love to come and cuddle up with her books!

And finally, a matching pillowcase!
I hope that you have enjoyed my projects for the Nancy Drew Blog Hop.  Be sure to stop by all of the other talented bloggers listed below!

And, once again, thank you to Madame Samm and Carol!
