    I changed the Critters quilt pattern to make "same only different" wall hangings for my twin GDs.

    I made the wings free floating to add excitement. And the Christmas I was working on them I went into Joannes and wandered aroung muttering to mysels -- "what does a fiery dragon's breath look like" and "does a unicorn's tale sparkle"

    I found perfect ribbons for each. Merlin's robe is blue velvet and his hair is white fur.

    Some day if I know a child I think would like dragons, I will make another.

    Really impressive color choices. The fire-breating dragon looks like a real fire-breathing dragon. Great work.

    simply gorgeous - did you create your own fabric too? The twins must have been jumping for joy when they saw these!

    The fabrics were batiks that I had -- One girl is teal and the other is purple -- They were 10 back then and now in their 20s and with SOs -- but their dragons are on their bedrooms in their new digs.

    I was so touched when I saw their apartments

    I love, love, love this. Have you read "The Dragonriders of Pern"? Your GD's might enjoy this book, too, depending on their age.
