Acorn Dragons

 I was able to finish two Acorn Woodland dragons, Sprig and Sprout . I used up the last of the Oak-wing woodland fabric. Although I do plan on making maple leaf versions, so there may be more small ones in the future.

This is a Woodland Oak-Wing

First Dragons of 2020

Acorn Woodland Dragons

Sprout has found a new home and is headed to Wisconsin. Safe trip Sprout.

’m also giving the 2019 dragons not purchased a make over, let’s see if they find homes.

I’m already working on more dragons for February-March

I also found some new fabrics, that I love, and will make many beautiful dragons!

I’m currently working with this fabric, cutting out Reivers and Nippers for Listing in March.

I should have 4 Wyrms out of this fabric finished early February (testing a new pattern, not sure there will be anymore of them)

I LOVE this Fabric, I’m not sure what to hatch out of it?, maybe guardian, or Asian Dragons, but it is such a happy fabric, maybe Pixies /Fae dragons too.

2019 – another year ended!

I’ve enjoyed the Holidays, Went to Texas for Thanksgiving! Enjoyed the Texas Renaissance Fair! It is so big we barely got to see a small part of it. Just means we will need to go back at a later date.

Christmas was rushed but wonderful, Let’s just say Amazon delivered an abundance of packages.

New Years I’ll be packing away the last of the decorations, and getting the tree tucked away until next year.

Working on the next batch of Dragons

After some realization of how many dragons I can hatch in 5-6 weeks,  my new Holiday To hatch list has been adjusted down to 6, the rest will be hatched after the Holidays.

2 – white, snow pixies (1 is reserved)

2 – Pink candy-cane Pixies

2 – woodland moths

I’m really pleased with these choices, and think they will be amazing.

I’ll be closing the Etsy shop down in mid December, don’t worry I’ll make sure to get any adopted dragons to their new homes in time for Christmas.

As for 2020, after I open the Etsy shop in February, I want to work mostly on larger dragons, it’s been awhile since I’ve hatched  any Royal, Sea, Asian, or Ryder dragons.

How to wear a Pixie Dragon

Pixie Dragons can ride on your shoulder.

I use a ball and socket armature for the Pixies. Moving the legs to a back position allows the Pixie to belly-rest on the shoulder with their tails positioned around the neck and up to the front for balance. You can position the arms and legs; just don’t spin them around in one direction, since that would tighten the internal thread to the point of breakage.

The wire in a dragon should bend pretty well, you just don’t want to bend it back and forth repeatedly, as for the armature the manufacturers  say it can bend up to 28 degrees.  I bent the armature as much as I could before it would snap apart, and took the pic below.  It is very sturdy and you will feel resistance when it has reached the bending limit.
