Picnics make me think of gingham blankets spread out on the grass and baskets full of delicious treats. This design is inspired by a book I had when I was little, called "The Giant Jam Sandwich", about a town plagued by wasps! The solution: bake a giant loaf of bread (excellent pictures of towns people jumping up and down on an enormous pile of dough, to knead it), lay a slice out on a big red gingham blanket and spread it with butter and strawberry jam. When the wasps swarmed on to the giant jammy treat they were trapped when a second slice of bread was dropped on top! All of the local birds then gathered up the gingham blanket in their beaks and flew off with the waspy jammy sandwich into the sunset.
