dandelyne Day twenty-eight of the @createandthrive photo challenge and it is #intheworld. Without the internet and social media I would't be able to reach people in all corners of the globe. Thankfully we have it. As a result, everything that begins in my lounge-room, here in Melbourne is reaching people all over this beautiful world of ours. #ctmonthinthelife 23h

dandelyne Catch up - day twenty-six of the @createandthrive photo challenge and it is #in-situ. I have realised that I do not have any recent shots of my products in position. Crazy! One of the many reasons that I love doing this photo a day challenge. Thank you @createandthrive, it is now on the top of my to do list. This shot was sent to me by one of my favourite customers @alicelidd showing off her custom family portrait, taking pride of place by the front entrance. #ctmonthinthelife 2d

dandelyne Catch up - day twenty-five of the @createandthrive photo challenge and it is #workclothes. My get up depends on whether I have to leave the house or not. It varies, but the one consistent item is my uggies. Ugly, but oh so comfy. #ctmonthinthelife 2d

dandelyne What a morning! I have received so many beautiful emails from people who have received their custom portraits and are happy to share the love with me. My smile is bigger then my head. This is a portrait I stitched of 16 people and pets. It was a gift to their mum and it was the first time I stitched a portrait this big. Love the result and I love the email from this gorgeous family . 4d

dandelyne Day twenty-two of the @createandthrive photo challenge and it is #goal. THIS IS IT! My passion for embroidery makes every inch of my body want to burst into stitches. Imagine that! Cool! I want to punch the air every single day through my own work, the work of other embroiderers and anyone who is taking it up for the first time. If I can include the word EMBROIDERY into a sentence at least once a day I am a happy camper ^_^. #ctmonthinthelife 7d

dandelyne This tiny giraffe by Kim of @cupcakecutieone totally breaks the cute-o-metre. Agree? Her work makes my whole body smile. 7d

dandelyne I love it when you have just enough thread for the final stitch. It's definitely the small things that make me punch the air. 7d

dandelyne Day twenty-one of the @createandthrive photo challenge and it is #morning. I always start the day with eggs and lemon water. Best start to the day for me. If I'm rushed, it's poached eggs and if I have time it's an omelette stuffed with veggies, topped with HOT HOT HOT sauce. Yummo!!!!! I'm salivating looking at the photo and want it again >_<. #ctmonthinthelife 1w
