A dragon from a film… ~ Un dragón de película…

Just as I was finishing the blue and purple dragon, we watched a film called “How to train your dragon” How fitting, I thought! And then, browsing InTatters albums, I saw one made in a colour combination that reminded me of Toothless – so of course, I had to make this!

Cuando estaba terminando el dragón violeta y azul, vimos la película “Cómo entrenar a tu dragón” ¡Qué adecuado, pensé! Y después, mirando un album en InTatters, vi uno hecho en una combinación de colores que me hizo acordar a Chimuelo – así que por supuesto, ¡tuve que hacer este!

Black tatted dragon

The pattern is in Anne Bruvold‘s blog. This time I used black (and a bit of brown!) DMC size 8 cotton perlé thread, and added one strand of DMC Jewel effects metallic mouliné thread to the wing chains. I had to do double core single shuttle split rings to climb out (ie. tatt the first part of the SSSR with both shuttles together), but it was worth the effort I think!

El patrón está en el blog de Anne Bruvold. Esta vez usé hilo DMC perlé no. 8, negro (y un poquito de marrón), y agregué una hebra de mouliné “Jewl effects” tambien de DMC en las cadenas de las alas. Tuve que usar anillos divididos de una sola naveta de nucleo doble para pasar de ronda (es dedir, hacer la primer mitad del anillo dividido con las dos navetas juntas), pero valió la pena el esfuerzo, creo!

Black tatted dragon detail

Before posting, I want to mention my sadness at the recent death of Gina Brumet, who was truly a pillar of the on-line tatting community. Her blog  was probably the first stop every morning for tatters all over the world. She was always kind in her comments to others, and sharing her vast knowledge without presumption – her blog is truly a treasure of anitque patterns and her tatting blog roll is one of the most exhausitve. She will truly be missed and lovingly be remembered. I want to join this Idea IsDihara mentions: Lady ShuttleMaker and CrazyMom have offered up a truly lovely suggestion — to make a tribute to Gina, who touched and enriched our lives with her wit and wisdom:

Let’s all blog sweet things in tribute to Gina on Friday, each on our on blogs and when we get time to post. I think Gina would be very pleased.

I think in a sense, that is already happening, with many bloggers that had been silent for a while posting their sadness and condolences. So, I will be joining on Friday  in my tribute.

Antes de publicar esto, no quiero dejar de mencionar mi tristeza por la reciente pérdida de Gina Brumet, que era un verdadero pilar de la comunidad virtual de frivolité. Su blog era probablemente la primer visita diaria de frivoliteros de alrededor de todo el mundo. Siempre era amable en sus comentarios, y compartía sus vastos concoimeintos sin pretenciones – su blog tiene una bilblioteca de patrones antiguos que es un verdadero tesoro, y su “blogroll” sobre frivolité es uno de los más exhaustivos.  Será extrañada, indudablemente, y recordada con afecto. Quiero unirme  a la propuesta de IsDihara, LadyShuttleMaker y CrazyMom, de hacer un tributo a Gina, que enterneció y enriqueció nuestras vidsas con su ingenio y sabiduría.  La idea es publicar posts dulces en su memoria el viernes (o cuando podamos escribirlos) Como dicen, seguramente a Gina le gustaría.

    Amazingly awesome dragon!! You are so tempting me to cross to the tatting world and i really dont need another hobby! LOL
    On another note, prayers and blessings for Gina, her family, and everyone who was inspired by her craft. I am sure she will be missed greatly and i think it is a nice tribute to have a remembrance day for her.

      Thanks Luv!

      You should try tatting. I know this dragon has been the inspiration for many tatters to start 🙂

      I skipped this year’s remembrance for Gina. I had a post in mind, but was not blogging much during February… (I have not been blogging much at all, in fact!)

      Peace, Mónica
