I have been following sewing and craft blogs for a little over a year now and one of my favorites is No Big Dill. Katy is not only an absolutely a fantastic sewer, but she's a great cook and an inspriational mother. I truly feel she is one of those souls that is simply kind. She must have a heart of gold, because not only does she provide inspiration to those of us in Blogland, but she is the mother to six (yes, six) beautiful children! She shares her lessons of parenthood with as much wisdom and grace as I hope to gain as I raise my own girls.
My favorite challenge was last year's Once Upon a Thread series, which was projects inspired by children's books. I LOVE reading and I have a very soft spot for classic children's books - as in stories that I enjoyed that are still timeless enough for my children to enjoy as well. I figured this would be a great first challenge for myself and quickly came up with an idea (I mean, many popped into my head, so it was hard to narrow down!) I chose The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf with drawings by Robert Lawson.
