Today is our very final guest! Can you believe Once Upon a Thread is coming to an end? I'm sad and relieved all at once, but have had such fun this month and been inspired by all those who participated.Cheri from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar is here today with one of her cute boys. Cheri's blog is uplifting, if I could sum it up in one word. Not only is she always positive, but she encourages others to be positive as well with her "Wake up Wednesday" challenges of doing something good in the world.
Or her bag pattern that she made for the purpose of donating the proceeds toward the Japan Relief efforts, which was extremely well received.
And then there is her creativity she uses for her boys. What little boy wouldn't want Cheri as their mom! Take a look at what they get to have as their bedroom!
What a treat to have Cheri with us today!

Hey No Big Dill readers! I am excited to be here today. Katy's blog is incredible and packed full of creativity.
Today I'm sharing my very favorite children's book with you. It's called "Someday." It's simple and beautiful and frankly, it makes me tear up everytime I read it.
I love the simple, pretty illustrations.
The illustrations include a girl, but I don't have girls. I have 2 boys, so I wanted to create an outfit that felt like this book. The clothing the little girl wears almost always includes stripes. It's baggy and free flowing.
So I used Dana's fabulous pants pattern to make comfy pants for my little guy. I upcycled an old striped shirt from my husband.
Here they are. I even left the shirt pocket on because I thought it landed in a cute place.
It's hard to see unless the photo is super close, but they are striped.
I based the shirt on this page. My little guy loves to swing as high as I'll push him on the swings.
I used an exisiting shirt and stitched on a swing. Then I wrote the words with a fabric marker.
"Then you were my baby. Now you are my child."
This book helps me appreciate these moments when my children are so little.....
...because I know time is going to fly.
I wish I could show you all the pages, but here's the last one.
And here's the comfy number for my little guy. Great for playing, running, and swinging.
Thanks for having me Katy. It's been a fun month. All of you are welcome at my place anytime. Have a great day!
