    Just looked at this cute dragon that was made - absolutely love it. Also noticed that there are a few of us that LOVE dragons. So how many are there of us total? How long have you been collecting and what?

    I'll start - I've been collecting since the 80's, have approx 250 figurines and other additional items in fabric, jewelry, knives and other dragon essentials, plus 1 other like stewyscrewy ( shoooush don't tell, my Mum might be listening). My Favorites are the cute one's - the babies, but do have a few older ladies and gentlemen. I don't know where I got this liking, maybe because I'm Welsh, I don't know. My DM doesn't understand at all.

    I like dragons. I love to read about them, rather than collecting the figures (too much dusting for my taste! :lol: ). I have every one of Ann McCaffrey's Dragon series.

    Love dragons, have done many cross stitch patterns. Back when I was new to quilting, I found a pattern for a dragon, it was georgous, but sooo far out of my league it wasn't funny! Wishing I would have bought the pattern, may have taken over a decade, but I think I could do it now.

    I love Ann McCaffrey's books, too. I don't know if I have read them all, though. I kind of lost track along the way somewhere... is she still writing them? I like dragons a lot- I have a paper piecing pattern somewhere that is pretty big that I plan to make someday.

    I love dragon also. My high school was the Red Dragons. I play MahJongg because it has Red Dragons, not really I play it cause I like it. I am making a dragon , Red, table cover for my card table. It will be done soon, I have talked about dragons so much that my DGD, has started drawing them. When she comes to visit we will take one of her drawings and transfer it onto a Tshirt that she can show off to her friends. Go Red Dragons!!!

    Ever notice how many countries - that would seem to be unconnected - have dragons in their art and their literature?

    (Literature includes fairy tales and folk lore.)

    I love them. :) Don't collect them because that would mean I would have to do more dusting. :)

    But I do write some stories with them in it, and I love cross-stitching them too. And I've even got some dragon fabric.
