Better late than never?

After the rather unpleasant hurricane season of 2004, I called a number of local places to see about getting storm shutters, leaving a trail of voicemails. Most of the larger dealers never called back.

This morning, I got a call from one of them. Two years later. Um, thank you but we already have shutters now.

Somewhat of an amusing occurrence, nonetheless.

Speaking of "better late than never", I have finally finished Assisi Spring, so you can see something other than a mockup. Ta-da!
Assisi Spring (for real this time)

I used Vikki Clayton's "Russian Sage" and a handful of Petite Treasure Braid for the various backstitching, on antique white Belfast. Unfortunately the sparkle isn't showing up so well in the scan. I've updated the PDF with the model picture and specs.
