The snail is worked in long and short stitch in sections with two colours alternating. I really like the effect, and it’s a lot less tedious to work than all the chainstitch filling before.

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Lucy, Jess, Sue, Kate, Debbie Rose, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Helen, Steph, Wendy, Linda, Catherine, Mary Margaret and Timothy.

If you would like to join in please contact Avis, who will give you full details.
