Dragon #2 "Spring"



Ann Bruwold's dragon again, this time tatted in green Flora size 20 with size 11 pink, glass beads. This maybe a little "girlie" for a dragon, but I want her for my room. I think she will have her own little frame.

I tried to think of a particularly clever name for her as she was inspired by a favorite outfit from my senior year of high school. I had an a-line skirt and sleeveless blouse made from green and pink material that was a kind of plaid I guess. The background was green with tiny pink stripes in both directions, to the best of my memory. I loved that outfit. It also had a canvas belt that was cream colored. My mother and grandmother made most of my clothes, but this one was "store bought" and very special. I don't know where Mother found the money to buy it, but I loved it and must have worn it out. I don't remember what happened to it. If only we realized how special our memories would be, we might hang onto some of the things at the root of these memories......

Your dragon is adorable. You described that dress so well I can totally picture it. I am sure you were as cute as a button in it.

I think you made a good choice of colours for a female dragon.

Loved the bead/thread combination, and the dragon shows up better. And perhaps you might want to consider some interesting background in a frame.

Oops! put my comment on the wrong post, here it is again.

He is so delicate and a lovely keepsake. I am on Dragon no 2 as well but not nearly as pretty as yours.

Thank you all so much. I enjoyed tatting this little dragon. I'll try to get my bead placement better next time. A background for her is a good idea Singtatter. Thanks!
