I've worked into this version a bit more than the previous ones. There is much more additional hand stitching and some extra ink added on top for definition.

If I were to really stretch things to get back to my original concept, I suppose I could say this is how Fleming felt when he realised what he had found - hence the title 'Hatchling - The Dawning'. But frankly, that's just pretentious!!

That's a beautiful stitching pattern. Lovely work.

Gorgeous stitching. This was a great concept and I so enjoyed seeing the whole process.

I love the way you've pushed this idea. If it weren't February soon, with a new challenge, I could see several other workings of the theme!
