Happy Thanksgiving!

Etsy pushed the Cyber Week sale so I jumped on the bandwagon. I relisted Silver Sparkle and Silver Shield, so hopefully some of the art dragons will finally sell. And of course the logical thing to do, when things aren’t selling, is make more of them. This is Draco Splendens, the Purple Crowntail (its scallops […]

It’s still autumn

I know I made a couple snowflake dragons this week, and we did have some snow happening at the time, but it’s still autumn daggonit. A recurring theme for me has been “what happens if I put THIS in the embroidery machine?” and silk flowers/leaves has been on my list of things to try for […]

More work on the Celestial

A little light on the updates because I haven’t had much to show. I did wrap up the four little beanies that match this, but I’m holding off on the final photoshoot until I have the Celestial Dragon (a/k/a Space Noodle) done. At that point I’ll lock the cats in the bathroom for the several […]

Four art dragons in the shop

Tiny dragons

More standing plush dragons

Now that I have a breeding pair, getting the shop stocked with these should go much faster. All the new colors of beanie dragons have been eating up my time, but hopefully I’ll get the conventional machine out this weekend. I’ll sew the larger version of these and see what needs tweaked in that pattern.
