Week four in Wandaland

Poor Wanda had a bit of an accident, she fell over while doing a photoshoot in the snow.

My dear friend Janet sent me some lovely stripy socks, with toes! Wanda was fascinated.

Wanda came with us for a lunchtime beer at the Weymouth Arms, where we were able to sit in front of the log fire

I have some sweetpea seedlings that I've started off in the kitchen where its nice and warm, Wanda checks progress

A very lucky charity shop find, a set of 6 Royal Doulton tea plates to match our teapot. Wanda is pleased with my purchase.

Wanda really needed to give her approval to the new sliding patio door that we've had fitted between the dining room and the conservatory

I've been calorie counting since the start of the year, Wanda checks my chart to make sure I'm not cheating

Week three, in and out.

We stayed in, and Wanda helped me to sort my clothes

We went to Trowbridge, and met with Jean for coffee and chat

We stayed in, and I cut out some placemats for the kitchen breakfast bar

We went to Devizes, met Claire, had a drink in the White Bear

We stayed in, Wanda inspected the hyacinths

and the fabric for the new dining room curtains

We went out, briefly, into the garden to have a look at the snow

Week two, in which Wanda gets out and about

Wanda looks out through the studio window at her rainy surroundings,

then she sits in my handbag, ready for some adventures.

First off, lets take her out to see her Uncle Westbury,

then a day at home, helping make some coasters.

A walk in the countryside, peering over a five bar gate.

At home, helping to finish off the bottle of mulled wine,

then another trip out, this time a walk around Fonthill Park

Week One, say hello Wanda

This is how it all started

parts ready for stitching together

and some extra leg strengthening so she can stand alone

eyes and nostrils stitched, mane and forelock added, head stuffed

tail added

she's complete

and can stand on her own four feet, now the fun can begin.
