Just finished the last of the purses I wanted to complete this summer. It’s State Fair time here in Minnesota, almost Labor Day weekend and school starts on Tuesday….but I squeaked this one out in time to still say I met my goal (not that anyone cares but me!).
The book is “Nancy Drew and the Secret of the Old Clock” – a title that I have used many times but the FIRST time that I used this particular cover. I love the Bill Gillies 1950’s cover that I usually use, but is was fun working with this 1960’s cover designed by Rudy Nappi. His cover (with Nancy in a green dress) is the one that most of us probably grew up with. One reason (other than nostalgia) that I wanted to use the Rudy Nappi cover is that I found what felt like the perfect lining for it – a fun reto-esque cotton print with circles that hint at the ‘clock’ imagery, and a great green background that picks up the green in Nancy’s dress.
Now on to my fall and winter goals…..a lineup of each of Jane Austen’s novels. I can’t wait!
