Cross Stitch and Salsa

It's been a busy day here at Caprice Creations!  I've been thinking about creating my own cross stitch patterns for a while now.  So, this morning, after breakfast, I sat down with pencil and graph paper.  My first idea was a little too ambitious.  I started off designing an Autism Awareness ribbon, but the puzzle pieces proved too difficult.  I'm hoping to revisit the design later.  So, I chose to create an elegant cross which I think turned out quite nicely.  See :)

Believe it or not, that took most of the morning!  After lunch, Little Caprice and I made some homemade fire roasted Tex Mex salsa to can.  And while waiting for things to cook, jars to sterilize, and the actual canning process to complete, I worked on digitizing that beautiful graph that I created (yes, I am a little proud of my work lol).  This was my very first attempt at canning anything, and it was truly exciting to hear those little lids popping as they cooled :)  We were left with 7 jars of FRESH salsa!  YUM!

And while those yummy jars were cooling, I finished digitizing the elegant cross:

Now the only thing left to do is test the pattern and gets some pics of the finished project.  Hope you've had a productive Monday as well!
