A Clamshell Update



The summer is coming to an end, although you'd never know it by the weather. We are in the middle of another heatwave. It is only 10:00am and it already feels like 40C! This is unusual for the end of August.





I only got a few clamshells done this month. Here they are. Click on the icon above to see more clamshell blogs.


We had the first executive meeting of our quilt guild last night. I got roped in volunteered to do the Newsletter this year. The only problem is that my computer is not cooperating. I have had several people come over and try to install the program, but so far I have had no luck. I thought the problem lay with me, but it seems that my computer's disk drives are not working. I may have to break down and buy a new computer.

These are wonderful Hetty. I love the different fabrics. We have cooled down here, today it is very rainy and cool... a taste of what is to come.
Try and stay cool,

The shells look beautiful Hetty. It does not matter how many you make. The main thing is that you enjoy it.

Hetty, they are so gorgeous!
I love how you intersperse the pink and grey shells.
What lovely work...
and I do wish your computer woes would end soon...
Back to school time really is the best time to get good deals on a new computer! But I hope the problem can be fixed simply.
hugs from Cyprus, where it is still HOT,
