Met Mark and the family in Ikea on Friday and got all the things I needed to finish the conservatory. I got the tall Billy bookcase, some plastic plants and some magazine files. Mark and Roman put the bookcase together for me and I have had fun filling it. Photo not good as it has missed off the top and bottom shelves.
Today I met up with Mark, Michelle and Roman for a tour of the Morgan car factory in Malvern. Really interesting. They are all hand built, not a robot in sight, and are made individually rather than a track system. The chassis and body panels are all aluminium but ash wood is used in the construction, The interior is all leather. The engines are BMW but they have no fancy gadgets. They have about 12 coats of paint and lacquer are are sprayed by hand. The craftsmanship that goes into the build in amazing, passed down through the years (some of the machinery is antique). Neither Mark nor myself thought for one moment that photographs would be allowed so neither of us took proper cameras and ended up having to rely on our phones. Hence photos not very good.
I am Jenny (when I was little my dad always called me Jenny Wren) and I enjoy making hand crafted things. Watch this space to see what I am working on.
