The Mystery of the Concealed Heart

Encouraging Words of the Day:
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. ~ Philippians 4:13, NLT
Welcome to another day of the Nancy Drew is a Clue Blog hop.
I have such great memories of Nancy Drew books when I was growing up. My sister and I used to walk to the library and come home loaded down with Nancy Drew and "The Hardy Boys" mystery books. What fun we had! Here's how the books looked on the library shelf, no dust covers to give one a clue.
So now now I'm here with "The Mystery of the Concealed Heart." We need our magnifying glass to start looking for a clue. I started working on my Nancy Drew project in the early part of February, with hearts in my mind. I found an easy and pretty pattern for a "Log Cabin Heart" and started there with my Nancy Drew and other matching fabrics. The Nancy Drew fabric was full of ideas. Of course, the first part was to grab the magnifying glass.
Well, you can find magnifying glasses in two places and, of course Nancy Drew follows the clues until she finds a little heart somewhere. Can you find the heart?
Thank you to Madame Samm and Carol from "Just Let Me Quilt" for putting this blog hop together! What a fun hop it has been. Be sure to check out all of the other Nancy Drew projects today. Here is the list.

That is so clever! :-) I love the old tweed covers best of all -- to the point that I'm thinking about packing away the dust jackets from my new ones so I can enjoy the blue spines.
