This summer why not plan a homemade picnic right down to the napkin rings. Bake some fresh bread, gather some ears of corn from your local farmer, slice open a ripe melon from your garden and let the fun begin. I love collecting vintage tableware and linens for our picnics.

You could make several and chain or slip stitch them together to create a sweet, spring accent scarf. You could also make two and attach hair bands for your daughter’s pigtails.
