Conclusion for the Stewart

This is one of the amazing things about this pattern.  It has a great name, LOL and I didn’t come up with it.  A great old friend of the family, Marty Sherman created this pattern and named it after my dad or the shop.  Not sure which but I’ll ask Marty when I talk to him.
