The Clams made it to Provence and it was such a delight to be able to infuse those memories into the stitches (and considering I started it with my little niece in Holland, it makes this a little treasure already!) I didn't do much, but I am so happy with how it is progressing.
I have been having such fun with this little project. With each row it seems to be getting easier.

I have found sewing from right to left much easier, and Ria, Look who made it to Provence:
Piep, the mouse thumb-pincushion!
I had 'foil-pressed' my clams before leaving and am happy to say that they kept their fold until I had the chance to work on them. This is great news for me, as now I know this can become another take-along project.
Here are a few more pictures from the open-air market in Arles. Arles is a fortified city on the river Rhone which had considerable importance in the Roman Empire. Vincent van Gogh lived and worked in Arles. (if you are interested you can read more here.)
