SewMelody Feature!

Today's post is about my friend Melody of She makes beautiful blankets and minky's for babies. Also she can make throws for adults and teens. Here is part of her shop announcement and profile:

I sew because it brings me joy to make beautiful things. It is my deepest desire to bring that joy to others through the work I do. Womanhood is a journey of hope. I strive to live a life that is full of the feminine virtues of youth and maturity, of spontaneity and order, of suffering and joy. Capturing the loveliness of these apparent contradictions in a creative work is a great joy to me. It lends hope to a day of laundry and dishes. It reveals the mysterious beauty in the tears and diapers.
I personally love her satin blankets, and the Jesus Loves Me one too. There is such a nice variety and she takes care in everything she makes.
Melody is a sweet Christian lady who I enjoy chatting with on Etsy's CAST team thread on the forums of Etsy. She is so sweet and joyful, and I hope you will check out this great shop and give her a heart (or a sale!)

She makes all kinds of beautiful crosses from metal, and even felted ones. There are wall hangings, Christmas ornaments, keychains, and magnets. Sometimes she uses gemstones and rusty nails. She even has some for baby boys and girls' walls! They are so gorgeous! I hope that you'll check her shop out and heart it if you like it.
