Aaahhhh Clare I'm so excited to see this finally! I just finished punching the grommets in mine and I can relate to the hand troubles. I got ambitious and did all of the cording (and interpreted the caning as cording because, like you, I did NOT want to fuss with caning) and oh man, that was not fun. If you do ever play with cording on the side panels of this pattern though, it really makes it hold its shape wonderfully!

It's so neat to read your process and how it differed from mine! We will have to commiserate in Oxford and compare notes! Pray for me first though, as I'm going to attempt all of the embroidery next week...
