SAL Snowglobes: 2/8

I've just finished the second snowglobe, about a week late (ouch). It's another christmas-themed one, with a nice christmas tree. Unfortunately, the frogs really seem to love this SAL as well, as I've been visited many times on both globes.
On to number 3...!

I've taken the challenge to stitch on clothes, nothing complicated though, just a tiny Hello Kity on a easy t-shirt. I used the DMC soluble canvas for this. It melted away quite easily, and I'm rather happy with the result.

I found a new recepy that looked quite delicious, and since it was my father's birthday, it was a good occasion to try it out!

Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is having a hand-dyed floss New Years give-away. She's also having a Christmas give-away!! That's two chances. Go check it out!

Thanks for the suggestions! I have closed the google-toolbar as suggested by Miek, we'll see soon if it has helped :)

Edit: still not able to post, which means I'll have to start it the old old slow slow slow desktop
Edit 2 to change time of publishing to current time.

This morning the streets were quite icy. My bike (the two-peddled kind) decided to flirt with the ice on the street while I was on my way to work, the result: a couple of stitches in my face. I've told my bike never to flirt again!

Nice finishes, Katrien. Your cake looks delicious.

I reverted back to an older version of Explorer and I'm able to post to blogger from my laptop now.

de globes worden ontzettend leuk, dus doorgaan hoor!
ik vind je hello kitty ook goed gelukt, zo kan je nog wel doorgaan voor je dochtertje.
wat naar dat je gevallen bent, daar zal je nog wel even last van hebben.
ik wens je prettige feestdagen toe en hoop dat je niet te veel pijn zal hebben.

Be careful on that bike...wear a helmet! You can now stitch on aprons, jackets, shirts and anything else you want. Also, give duplicate stitch a try for stitching on knitted articles like scarves...much fun to be had decorating clothing. Good luck!
