This

morning I was at home waiting for some visitors to arrive, I had fabric out on the table, so I decided to cut some strips off before I had to put it away. I have to thank Robyn and Marina for motivating me, I have been a bit scared to cut into the fabric, they told me to just get on with it, so I did!!
I honestly do not know why I was dithering about with it!! The top part is cut and pinned ready to be appliqued

and the bottom strip and two strips cut for the sides! Easy!! It is really nice to be working with the  clamshells again. Tomorrow is sewing day!
I had to do some messages in Geelong today, so the morning visit was changed to afternoon and I picked up the visitors from Geelong and brought them home. They are friends from Auckland are they are on the cruise ship moored off Portarlington today. I brought them back here for a look at the house and a cool drink and then drove them back to the ship.

it was a perfect beach day at Port

the tenders take the Kiwis back to the ship

The view on my way home.
I think I might go and sew a little on the clam shells before dinner.
Happy sewing.

Great that you could give your friends a bit of an outing - it sounds like you had just the right amount of time! Oh yes, taking those first cuts can be hard - but well done :-)
