Welcome June! Sometimes (often) summer is a busy time of trips, gardening, baseball etc . . . but I have been trying to be mindful of keeping it slow too. Trying to get caught up on projects that keep talking to me in my head and just enjoy my home, my boys, and just being present.
One project I have been wanting to make since I saw it in the Rhythm of the Home Spring Issue were some updated fancy cloth napkins. Mind you we have our stack of everyday cloth napkins that are a hodgepodge of different napkins, but I wanted something fun and special for our little garden parties, birthdays, etc. So I rounded up different patterns of vintage sheets and upcycled them up nicely into some fun napkins- now to just plan the next wee little party to use them! I could not help but to make some little sleeping bags from the scrap fabric for some summer slugs in the shop!
Cloth just makes more sense to me- and not too hard to wash up, a good green option. They make great gifts too! Summertime makes washing so much more easy, rugs and laundry drying outside make my day!
June 1 is also the day for the Summer Issue of Rhythm of the Home. For the summer issue I contributed a Summer Snail Fingerpuppet pattern to help you slow down and enjoy some storytelling this summer. I hope you enjoy it and the whole summer issue- I can't wait to take it all in nice and slow this weekend!
To help with your storytelling I am giving away the snail I made for the project to one of my readers- just leave a comment here between now and Sunday at 5:00 pm and let me know something you are doing to slow down this summer. Bonus entry for following me on:
