Looks like Spring has finally begun!

This has been a brutal winter, but as of March 15th the snow is almost gone, just a few piles in the shade.  Yay!

Still have a few more dragons to finish up before I list the next batch…but at least I won’t need to have a heated blanket on to work anymore.

Polar Vortex Cold! I surrender- Winter has won!

It appears the Arctic Dragons have awoken from their hibernation and are migrating south, bringing the Polar vortex winds with them. Try to stay warm, and let’s hope they reach their nesting site soon.
Here in Michigan, with the wind chill, it will feel in the -4o’s degrees today.
During my off time, I’ve enjoyed my family, had a wonderful Holiday, made 2 gallons of Lavender Mead, made enough room in the garage to keep my truck out of the snow, and with some help I’ve claimed our walkout basement as my Art Studio. I am back to sewing and making dragons, and will open the shop sometime in March.
This year is going to be so busy; I’m ready to be creative!
“So many plans, so little time”

Have a Roaring Dragon Holiday and a Fire Breathing New Year!

It seems the Fates have decided that I should slow down and just enjoy the upcoming Holidays.  Time to reflect, refresh, recharge and spend time with family and friends.

I will get back to hatching dragons in January, see you then!

Dragons

I’m currently working on a dozen dragons, and should have them ready to list before Thanksgiving.  These will be the last of this years hatchlings.

5 Guardian shoulder dragons, 1 Royal Shoulder dragon, and 6 pixies.

Sorrel is sold

Sorrel will be nesting in New York, say hello for me if you see him.

Shade, a black and gold Reiver has found a forever nest

Will be heading to Chicago ASAP.

I’m finally getting back to working on my dragons….

Sorry it has been so long, guess I really needed a break from Dragontry.

I hope to have a few finished soon.

2019 will soon be here!  Time to make some changes.

 

Rest in Peace my Druid

Sadly, Druid lost his battles, and while the cancer contributed to his passing,  I’d like to think he beat it for almost 2 years, and passed as a 14 year old puppy.  He was always the best dog, very spoiled and loved, and will always remain in my heart.

 

Just finished this handsome Ryder Dragon…Sorrel

I adore this fabric

I used a metallic copper for the under colors

I hand painted his eyes in a copper and grey

Shell nose horns and spiral wrapped fabric antlers

Sorrel is an amazing dragon

Dragons for June

Druid is slowly getting better. He seems to be more alert, and is getting himself up, which is a big deal, I’ve been having to pick up his back legs for him to stand before walking!

I’m slowly working on the next hatchlings.  They are all sewn and wired., now the stuffing, sculpting and finishing can begin. I hope to have a few finished in June, and will list them when finished.

Current dragons I’m working on; 2 Ryders, (a Zebra and copper), 5 Guardians,    ( a white, dark green,  purple, burgundy,  and black), 1 Reiver (rainbow), and  6 Pixies, ( a white, burgundy, red, blue, purple and  dark green). Over all a good looking bunch of dragons.

After this batch, I’ll be taking 2 weeks vacation July -1st – 14th, then the rest of July I’ll be working on new dragons for the Fall.  I should have more dragons to list in September.
