I have removed all the big pieces and must now begin to proceed with more caution. Today I finalised the edges and made their thicknesses uniform. I want the edges to be at right angles to the sides at every point, and because of this the angle of each edge is constantly varying. I spent most of the day on this task. The whole piece begins to look more animated. The picture attached is before cutting the edges. Jordan is back from a trip to New Zealand and brought the freezing cold with him. Although we are now in March the winter has returned. Flurries of snow, a fierce wind, but dry. Jordan valiantly carried on with the block work for the new barn, probably wishing he had stayed in NZ.
