Miniature Glass figurines - 8

Last time I've posted all new cats in my collection, now let's go with the dogs.
Sal the Dalmatian:
Sal the Dalmatian has great guarding and hunting instincts. He’s always bursting with energy so he needs to get outside and exercise often. He has an affinity for horses and loves to run alongside them. Sal has outstanding endurance and agility. He’s quite friendly with those he trusts but aloof with strangers. Sal was born in Croatia, January 15, 2009.
Channing the Chihuahua:
Channing the Chihuahua loves to play in the sprinklers on a summer afternoon. She thinks it’s hilarious to get wet and then shake off next to people. Channing enjoys chewing on designer shoes and she always tries to sleep in her owner’s bed. She likes to be picked up but will not tolerate being carried in a purse. Channing was born September 26, 2009.
The "biography" of Channing and Sal I took from here. This is an amazing page for miniature glass figurines collectors.

Pears and Apples

This is last glass from Autumn set: apples and peaches (and some unknown berries :) )
I have finished painting this glass months ago but still haven't start new one. I have lot of ideas and no time at all. Probably I should spent some time and learn how to sleep 2 hours per day. The problem is I have no time to do that too:)
 Also I am trying to redesign my blog and make it more readable and consistent so don't be supprised if you see some unexpected things - they all are temporary and experimental.

Rest of glasses from this set:

My cute handmade knit dress

I love bright colors. I love extraordinary, weird things. I fell in love with this knit dress at first glance. I found it here: present-cama.livejournal.com. Isn't it just gorgeous?
I think I am pretty handy but knitting is not my favorite type of crafting. Moreover I don't like knitting at all. So despite of  I wanted this dress so much I was not going to knit it. It would be very sad if I had no sister who is really skilled in knitting! So I sent her the link with schema 
and ta da! 
 I have never had more beautiful dress. It just amazing.
And finally here I am - wearing the dress. Thanks, sister!
