I have now finished weaving in the black ground cover material to form a more solid basis for the reed thatching. Close up it really does look like part of a close fitting ‘little black dress’.
I’ve had to leave some gaps in the fabric as these are the two points where the frame comes apart to form three separate sections, and I need it in three sections for transportation purposes!
It rained last night and the drops made an interesting photo.
I shall be able to collect the reeds 27th August and then it will be all systems go, go, go….
