October Clamshells

Having stitched so few in September it was time to catch up for this month's update but first I needed to prepare more clamshells. My rows are now getting bigger requiring more clams of each colour & pattern so I printed off a whole batch with Inklingo .......

.........and then spent an evening cutting them out ready for stitching.

My clams around the world are growing, I've stitched 84 of these little beauties since the last update & it now measures 55" point to point. I think I'll be adding just two more rows after this faded red row, then it will be nice shorter rows to start filling in the corners & square it up.
Happy stitching :)

A few more Pies

I think I got quite carried away with making Pies last month & ended up with a total of 20! I'm using all sorts of red & blue fabric combinations, repros, brights, Kaffe Fassett & some delicate Rural Jardin by French General below.

I've also been auditioning a couple of spot fabrics for the background.......

& finally decided to go with the pale blue dots, so now at least I can start to applique the pies as I make them.

I've been so engrossed with these & catching up with my Tessellations BOM that I've completed neglected my clamshells, the end of the month has been & gone with no update from yours truely...........I promise to do better next month :)
