Meet the Maker: Dandelyne

This month we were delighted to feature the amazing Sonia Lyne of Dandelyne in one of our Meet the Maker features.  Sonia started Dandelyne from her home in Melbourne, Australia back in 2011.  She creates wearable miniature embroidery hoop necklaces and brooches as well as gorgeous family portraits ….Image2

And I think Sonia must be our first contributor ever to describe herself as a (very lovely) garden weed.  She told us that …

“I am a passionate embroiderer.  So passionate in fact, I have embroidery floss coming out of my pores and I look like one big fluffy dandelion!”

Hmmm .. not quite sure that’s exactly right Sonia!  But your work is so beautiful and as well as your own embroideries, we adore your teeny tiny hoops ….

That have inspired so many of us to pick up our needles and stitch all manner of things ….
