I have many friends who create amazing things with yarn. Some knit, some crochet, many do both. I am the cheering section that Ohhhs and Ahhhs over their creations.
These same friends have shared some fun dragon inspired patterns they have found online. You may find them here, here and, here
This week my friend Andrea shared this dragon inspired yarn.
It is called Venti Dragon Mocha. I found it online at Madelinetosh.com
The first one is
DK Twist | Venti Dragon Mocha
The other is
Tosh Merino Light | Venti Dragon Mocha
These yarns are 100% Merino wool. The Tosh Merino Light is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. The DK Twist is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in Peru. Both are dyed to order.
These are beautiful and I love the dragon name. The colors remind me of a woodland dragon.
This site has many beautiful yarns. If any one makes something with this yarn please share a photo.
I found these beautiful Dragon Suncatchers on Etsy in the Mad March Moon shop. They are beautiful! I have an east window that will be perfect for them to spread their colorful shadows.
This is the suncatcher that I ordered:

We have flaxseed and buckwheat wraps in our house that we pop in the microwave when we are having aches and pains. The heat is very soothing.
I found these adorable dragon wraps on Etsy today at BGHBotanicals (Bluegrass Hollow Botanicals) They are filled with flax seed and lavender. The owner grows the herbs that fill these wraps. Be sure to click on the links above or the photos below, to view her other handcrafted creations.

Apparently I am allergic to something and our crazy whip lash weather probably isn’t helping. 70F one day and 35F then next. I am feeling much like this little dragon below.

I love dragons and I love gardening. Over the last few years, I have been accumulating a variety of succulents. When my friend Marielle sent me a link to Succulent Dragons it was a perfect combination.
From the artist website:
“From the artist that brought you Descants & Cadences, the Shadowscapes Tarot deck, and the Dreamscapes series of watercolor technique books!
Stephanie Law would love to share with you her latest project. Succulent Dragons & other insatiable garden denizens is an art coloring book whose illustrations bring to life a whimsical melding of nature and the fantastical. With the mandala-like patterns of garden succulents, combined with mythical creatures whose forms echo the botanical elements, the art from Succulent Dragons invites you to connect with nature and with the child within you.
Succulent Dragons will be funded via Kickstarter, and will be available for pre-order pledges with a current tentative launch date of February 20th. To be notified when the Kickstarter goes live, please contact stephlaw (at) gmail (dot) com with your request to be on the Succulent Dragon interest list. You can also follow at Patreon for behind the scenes views, videos, and insights into the creation of the book and the drawings to fill it. The book will be softcover, 64 pages with roughly 30 full page illustrations on 100lb paper, perforated pages for easy removal and retail for $22.00 (with a digital version download included). There will also be a digital version only download option for $12.00.”

I love finding crossover items for my blog. Coffee and dragons. Dragons and coffee. Last week I found dragon coffee mugs. This week I found a handmade coffee eye cream made by Happy Dragon Skincare on Etsy.
From the description on the Happy Dragon Skincare site:

There’s no secret that beautifying, skin-boosting caffeine – found in coffee – is a must-have to help revive and rejuvenate tired looking eyes.
