New fabrics

2017 fabric 7

a dark rose/coral with red glitter, very pretty but wasn’t quite what I was looking for. Still it will be used to make amazing dragons

2017 fabric 3

This is the coral/ pink I was looking for, but no glitter…best match so far. I’m using this to make more requested Pixies.

2017 fabric 6

Finally found a cow print velvet, I’m making a Moo-gon for the next batch.

2017 fabric 5

Bumble Dragon – Sting

IMG_6256IMG_6259IMG_6266IMG_6261 IMG_6263 IMG_6265 IMG_6257 IMG_6258

Sting is an amazing Bumble Dragon. I hadn’t made a Bumble in a long while, and I tweaked the pattern so much for this one, it is practically a new style Bumble.
I finally gave up waiting for striped yellow /black fabric Lycra velvet to appear and just pieced together the two colors.
Sting is much bigger than the earlier Bumbles. I am really very pleased with the way Sting turned out.I added visual contrast by using both colors on his head, and using yellow texture paint.
He has yellow eyes and a faux fur mane in yellow and black.Sting’s legs are in a standing position (rampant), and stands about 13 inches tall. Measured from the nose, over the head and along the back to the tail tip – the length is approximately 33 inches. Sting has clear wings which are dusted in glitter.The body has a bead and wire armature and the legs, feet, ears and arms are wired.
The arms and legs are attached with covered button joints.

Please, None of my dragons are Toys! They are Fiber Art, and are not intended for small children! – (small parts may pose a choking hazard)

Never fear,  Bumble Dragons are very gentle and usually to not sting.

All the dragons started last Fall are… finished!

Now I will be finishing up and mailing out a  long over due Faerie coat, then another secret project.  Not counting on any dragons finished for Etsy until April.

Which means the DragonKinz Gryphons are now being moved to May- June.

Finally back to Dragon Hatching

Greetings to all, and best wishes for a great 2017.

Can’t believe it almost February!

The next batch of dragons for Dragontry are almost done. I hope to get them all photographed and listed by next Monday. If you have reserved a dragon/s I will be sending you an email and pictures soon.  There will be 19 dragons total.

It seems strange to have taken so much time off, but it was time well spent.

I had a great Holiday,  was able to spend time getting my Dragon-Kinz project going, and I had a few lessons on mold making and casting, (Thank-you Tiff). I’ve decided to work on Dragontry and Dragon-Kinz alternating months.

I will be casting Gryphon Dragon-Kinz in March, and will list them when they are finished, (late March). Assuming I’m happy with the prototypes. Dragon-Kinz will be winged creatures that will be hand size for carrying , or can rest on a shoulder via a harness ( harnesses will be sold separately, and if I design them correctly will work with Nipper to Royal size dragons)

My 11 year dog Druid, got some good news, I am so happy to say my furry baby’s cancer is now in remission, Yay! While he will stay on the Palladia (chemo 3x weekly), Druid is back to his funny ways.

 

Enjoy your Holidays!

This Fall has certainly been an interesting time,
First let me say Druid is recovering from his cancer surgery and is doing well on his chemo. I’ve also recovered from bronchitis, and last week-end we had a tree fall on the garage and roof, now we are dealing with the contractors and insurance.

I think the Fates, or powers that be, are telling me it’s time to slow down a bit.

I was able to finish the 3 dragons that are heading to the UK. Sadly I am not sure I will get any more dragons finished until after Christmas. If I do I will certainly get them listed.
I will still be working on them when I can.

Enjoy your Holidays!

Tinker and Alchemy have found new homes

20161129_142307

Alchemy- Ryder Dragon

Ryder dragons can sit upon your shoulder while you go about your adventures. The feet should be slightly cupped to fit upon your shoulder, drape the tail down your back and up and over to your opposite shoulder for balance.

Night-Sprites – Tinker and Tinder

Alchemy and Tinker have been releaded from reserve I will list them for sale.

Night-Sprites have been specially hatched to be more magical, they love glitter, and all that glitters!  Most have faerie wings, a few take after a more distant dragon ancestor and have dragon wings.  They are attracted to sparkly things, especially white blossoms in moonlight.

They can be seen gathering nectar from night blooming flowers , although a few have mistaken Night-sprites for  large moths or bats ….never fear they do not bite…too much.

Dragons

Seasonal Music on, working on finishing up dragons.  Today the three for overseas will be finished.  Tomorrow and Wednesday I will get as many reserved dragons finished as possible.  I will be sending out pics and emails as they are ready.

 

 

Storm Dragons

Last Saturday, after a beautiful and record warm day ( in the 70’s) , a cold front moved in brought an amazing thunder and lightning storm.  Which I usually love to watch! Not so much when lightning hit a huge tree near the house, sending the tree to hit the roof, and end up resting on the power lines.

Pretty scary, but it could have been much worse, I like to think a storm dragon was helping to keep us safe, just wish he had said hello, and gotten the trunk to the ground before leaving.

We still had power, and the tree didn’t go through the roof, Roof over the garage had  the eve smashed,  and a lot of siding will need to be replaced.

Dragons should be done in the following weeks

Certainly has taken longer than I had expected, I manged to get bronchitis right after Halloween, after 2 weeks I finally went and got antibiotics! I am feeling so much better.

My plan is to have all the dragons in this batch finished by next Friday, and listed Monday or Tuesday.  What ever dragons aren’t ready before Thanksgiving will need to wait until January to be listed.

I’ve also been spending more time with Druid, his surgeon is pleased with the progress,  no new cancer growths, and all the blood work was great.  Right now he is my Velcro baby and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
