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 .......
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 :)

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.
& 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 :)
