Helix Asperta Variagata (25/5)

Helix Asperta Variagata .
( very roughly the variagated snail!!)

I started off trying to make a heart. Made the first 3 rings, and had to stop for dinner. Finished dinner, picked up the "heart", and thought this looks more like a beastie, and so a snail was born.

Not sure of the size but very many thanks to BJ in NM for the thread.

I love the little "beasties". Thanks for the pattern. It's funny that we sometimes need to step back from what we are doing to see what it is really supposed to be!
