Clamshells - August update

Here's my progress for August, 3 more rows added to my clamshell trip around the world. I managed to stitch quite a bit whilst on holiday,(so easy with Inklingo) & made the most of this lovely granite bench in Mum's garden to take a photo. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else is progressing with this project.

It's wonderful to see how the Pay it Forward is spreading through blogland. My 3 places are now full & if you wish to participate, don't despair as Theodora still has spots available so pop on over to say hi & sign up.
Have a great week
:)

What a pretty Trip! I'd also like to know how large you're going to make it (those last rows will seem LONG I think!). It looks wonderful.

It is looking great Gisele. Have you seen the new one - clamshell with the pickle dish design. I am tempted.

Beautiful! I considered hand piecing them, but was afraid they would distort. One day I will test it out. I do love hand piecing.
