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 :)

I love how it is coming together ,the colors are so pretty together, I am envious of your consistancy on completing your projects , where as I like to roam between 5-6 projects I must be more consistant. hugs theodora

As I have been making some Klosjes with this faded red as well, I have been thinking of YOU! Doesn't it thread beautifully?
Missed you, friend!
