Nancy Drew-The mystery of the bloghop & giveaway!

Like so many of us "of a certain age", my love of books probably started with
the super sleuth, Nancy Drew!
Well, okay, The Hardy Boys too!
I wonder how many nights I read under the covers with a flashlight, so my parents wouldn't know I was still awake reading?
So when Madame Samm and Carol organized a Nancy Drew themed blog hop, I jumped on board.
I remember storing all my favourite books in a cardboard box in the closet, so for this hop, I decided a proper storage basket was in order.
Using a wonderful pattern by Anna @ Noodlehead, I made this divided basket using a charm pack of Get A Clue With Nancy Drew.
A big front pocket to hold all the important stuff....maybe the flashlight!
Don't you just love  the books fabric!
This basket  holds a lot of books!
The pieced backing has some of my favourite fabrics.
A divider to maybe organize the books read....and the books to be read!
A plate of cookies, a glass of milk and a handful of fun books!
Is there anything better??
Well, maybe a giveaway....
 I have 6 fat quarters of Daydream by Riley Blake to give to a winner.
Leave any kind of comment you like.
Followers get an extra entry.
I'll choose a winner at the end of the blog hop on Friday, March 15th.
This giveaway is now closed.
Now, how about visiting all the other bloggers featured today!

  For the full list of bloggers, you can check out Carol's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Now, go and grab a book to read!
