I needed a solution to food all over my floors around Jacob's high chair. I decided that I would make a drop cloth that would be easy to wipe up dropped food. I found some clear vinyl in a remnant bin and some cheap flannel. I sewed them together, turned them right side out, and edge stitched around the edge. I had Jake test it tonight and it caught most of the food just one little piece landed off the drop cloth.

I still had fresh blueberries from last Sunday in my frig so I pulled out one of my many cookbooks and found a yummy Blueberry Turnover recipe. I love cookbooks with pictures. I read them as if they are novels. This recipe came from the William and Sonoma Dessert Cookbook that Dan gave me for Christmas last year.

My sister has a blackberry patch in her backyard and was so generous to offer me some of her berries. I made nine jars of jam this morning at her house. I learned a valuable lesson, make sure your pot is big enough otherwise you have a major clean up job afterwards.

This afternoon I met my mom at Designers Resource, The Design Co, on 2253 South 500 East in SLC for their stepdown fabric sale. They do this sale twice a year. Every week the prices go from high to low prices per yard. The fabric options are hit and miss. This week was $2 a yard. My parents treated me to yards and yards of fabric for my birthday and I found so many fabulous fabric prints. I can't wait to make curtains, hot pads, placemats, bags, stuff, stuff, stuff!!! So fun!

I just finished painting my mother's hope chest that was given to me. I had difficulty getting all the vaneer glue off. I tried several products to get the glue off but I became impatient and just decided I'd had enough and painted over a lot of it. It looks good if you don't look too closely at it.

Our first family tradition that Dan and I started as newlyweds was having blueberry pancakes on our anniversary. The last two years we've had fabulous blueberry pancakes at little cafes. This year our anniversary fell on a Sunday, so we made our own to carry on the delicious tradition.
