Although I managed to finish that piece, I really wanted more of that trim but couldn't find it anywhere online. So I wrote Liz and sent her a description and a photo. It turned out that the trim has been discontinued but she managed to find a supplier who still had some in stock and got it for me! That's the kind of service you can depend on from Liz.
To save on shipping, she had included Joanne and Laurie's orders with mine and in addition to our orders, she sent a bag of 'stuff' she thought we might be able to use.
