My super-woman blogging abilities have been lacking lately, no? So here’s a bit to let you know what’s been going on in the Wild World of Duchess…
1. I got another dog. She is a Greyhound/Border Collie mix rescued from the Nevada Humane Society. She’s got some bad habits, but so far we’re breaking them via squirt bottle and prong collar (disclaimer: these collars in no way hurts my dogs, but instead train them to not pull on the leash and strangle themselves. I would wear one myself and often recommend them to everyone I see with an out-of-control dog)
2. I tried to make a cockade. Tried. It’s either harder than it appears, or I’m missing something…like grosgrain ribbon, for a start. I’m going to work on it and make a tutorial for you guys.
3. Breakfast a la Limoges. It’s the first time I’ve used this teacup, and I’m quite pleased about it. I never had tea parties as a little girls, not one single time, so having real tea parties every morning as an adult fills me with a glee, and the sense that the rest of the day will be good (let’s hope).
4. Flat-lining James’ Breeches. Have any of you ever tried to flat-line pants? It’s mental. Don’t do it! I ended up sticking them on my own legs, inside out, just to sew in the last bit of lining. Good news though, they’re not far from done.
