Certainly felling one’s seams is easier to do pre-construction but I wanted one last fitting before committing. 

I’ve only myself to blame. I made a mock. I should trust years and years (and years) of experience. It’s another day of fiddly work on the cards. 


No wonder I feel a bit like the kestrel chicks on my family’s farm! These wee things and their three siblings were carefully measured and weighed a few days ago. (They sort of ‘play dead’ when the folk involved in the kestrel project visit to check the boxes dotted about the orchard).

No chicks were harmed in the taking of this photo!
