The second snail shell is a little bit larger then the first. It was also designed by the artist Gudrun Hartwig.
Here is the design:
Transferring the design one should keep in mind that it does not appear mirrored. The spirals of snail shells always turn counterclockwise.
Starting on the outside, I embroidered Chain stitches along the double spiral line. Coral Knot stitches were worked along the single spiral line.
Blanket stitches were worked over one half of the two-part elements. The mirrored halves were simply outlined with Stem stitches.
The undivided elements near the center were covered with Satin stitches.
This snail shell is also a suitable addition to a sampler.
