Artisans I love: Shelly from Gingermelon

Preamble: today was a tragic day in Italy. A second major earthquake hit the country, and we still do not know how many people died in the event. Minor tremors keep going on, many railways and bridges are still closed, and our nerves are rather on edge. We're not really in danger - there were only little damages in our city - but, as you can imagine, this is a very serious moment.

I had already planned this post about the lovely work of Shelly, and I decided to publish it anyway - beautiful little things can help minds taking off for a while. Hope you will like her sweet patterns and plushes - I certainly do, they always make me want to take a needle and some felt, and start sewing some cute little creature.
I'll be back tomorrow, to keep you updated.

Big hugs,
