Anarya the Dragon

Meet Anarya,
Born on Sunday, June the 17th.

Anarya ~ Elvish day of the week. more info

The pattern,
It's not published yet. I have been going through the pattern for you, making it better here and there, adding a few more features. Anarya's wings have one more feature to be added yet but she was done enough to show her off to the world today. I might be releasing this pattern first as a CAL. I haven't totally decided yet but if I do, don't worry, once the CAL is over the pattern will be all on one page that can be printed off.

People are coming over!
I have to put the yarn away now and get ready for our Father's Day dinner. The family is coming to my house in just 2hrs and right now it looks like a yarny bomb went off in here, yikes! lol

Who is pictured with Anarya?
I introduced the Blue Dragon a few days ago with a story here. I have to name him yet! And that is Daenerys, she loves dragons! Pattern yet to be released. Lots coming your way but...

gotta go clean my house now! See you soon...

A Girl and Her Dragon

The Dragon,
A few days ago I introduced you to the Baby Dragon. He met the Grey Wizard who promised to teach him how to breath fire. If you missed that, go here. The Wizard pattern is already available for free.

Ever since that day the Dragon has been excited, waiting for the Wizard to return. He kept himself busy flying about looking for things to do and then he saw her!

The Girl,
She was daydreaming in a field of daisies. She had the most beautiful hair he had ever saw but more than that she had a way about her. 
The Dragon knew instantly she was the one. The one he would protect. She was everything to him.
He landed beside her and the ground shook. 
The girl lost her voice for a moment while she took in this magnificent beast standing in front of her. Was this a dream? Is there really a Dragon right there? The excitement grew inside her belly and she  let out a laugh. She knew right away that he was her friend.

She found her voice and asked him, "Do you breath fire?"
The Dragon said he did not, yet, but the Grey Wizard was coming soon to teach him how. "I will be a mighty Dragon then and I will protect you forever!"

A Knight in Shining Armor,
Before the girl could answer they both saw him. He was running towards them with sword and shield. He was yelling, "Get back, Dragon! Get away from that girl! I have come to save her. Here I am, girl! Your Knight in Shining Armor has come to save you!"
He was a brave boy indeed.

No Thank you,
The girl said, "Stop right there, Knight! I don't need you to save me. You stay away from my Dragon. He is my friend!"
With that said she jumped on the Dragon's back. They flew away together leaving that brave boy standing there with his sword and shield and nobody to save.

 Poor boy, he really did mean well but this was not his girl to save nor his dragon to slay.
 To be continued.

Patterns coming for the Dragon, the Girl, and the Knight!

See you soon...

The Wizard Makes a Promise

The Wizard Meets The Dragon,
Early this morning I made some horns for the baby dragon but I've been too busy to sew them in. They've been pinned to his head for hours! Poor guy!
Ah, but this is life, and I have learned there is strength found in patience. It's good he learns this while he is young.
(Easy for me to say, I don't have horns pinned to my head!)

Anyway, let's get to the story, shall we?
I went into my craft room to get something and I heard the Grey Wizard call my name. I love talking with that guy so I was happy to go see what he wanted.
He said, "I see you have a little dragon on your table. Please, bring me to him."
I did just that.
The Wizard and the Dragon talked for a long time. I couldn't hear everything they said to each other but I did manage to overhear something pretty cool!
The Wizard asked if he has learned how to breath fire yet, the Dragon said he had not.
"You are not fully formed yet. I see you need some work done, some parts need to be added here and there. Once you are fully formed, my boy, I will come back and teach you how to breath fire." With that said the Wizard left.
The Dragon was very excited indeed. He asked me if it was true, would he really teach him how to breath fire? I told him yes, the Wizard always keeps his word! Now let's sew those horns in, hold still...
To be continued.

Alright, enough with the story, are there patterns for these?
The Dragon pattern is still in the works.
The Wizard is a free pattern here. There's video tutorial for it too.

The Dragon Is Winning

Patterns available and patterns in the works,

Last week I published the mini Forest Friends. The the Beaver, Raccoon and Fox. They are modified mini Bears. Those patterns along with the bear are already available here
I decided since then that we needed mini Safari Friends too so designed a lion, giraffe, elephant and monkey. I'm thinking of adding a tiger. 

People are voting!
I posted this morning on my facebook page Amigurumi Freely and asked people to vote which pattern they want posted first. The Baby Dragon or the Mini Safari Friends.

Who's winning?

The Baby Dragon is winning! At the time I linked this post it was 146 to 98. Some are saying BOTH in the comments, which just makes me smile. I'm so glad people are excited about these patterns. I am too!

What then when?
Like I said  on facebook, I'm not sure how long it will take me but I'm working on these patterns as we speak. I've got lots done but there's still lots to do! If I could

Trolls In The Buttercups

crochet trolls in the grass

Trolls in the Buttercups!
Spring Trolls enjoying a wee bit of sun. What a happy sight indeed.
However, I saw the grass part and out came the suspicious one. He was looking for the shade.

I thought I'd show him just how fun the backyard can be and handed him a dandelion puff..
"What's this for?" He asked.
I told him it was to make a wish! Make a wish and blow on the dandelion puff. Then all the little seeds carry your wish far away to where it can come true.

"Go ahead little guy, I said with a giggle, make a wish!"
His lip curled up as if disgusted at the thought. "No!"


Just a bit of silliness for the weekend. I told that story on facebook and since then the Spring Trolls all got outfits to wear!
