Kowhaiwhai Transformations finished

Ok, I've been a bit slack recently and it's taken me until today to finally finish the binding on this. I'll blame Melanie, my daughter. She's been back in New Zealand for part of her summer holidays so we've been busy catching up. All of the catching up has caught up with me! I fallen asleep every afternoon this week.

Anyway, it's done now and will be off to North Carolina tomorrow.  I see that Hurricane Irene looks like it's going to leave them alone. Here's a close-up view of the quilting. It almost looks like trapunto!
Update: I had just checked out a map of the path of Hurricane Irene when I posted this. News reporting being as it is, I hadn't heard about Irene until it threatened the US coast. I wondered if my sister had had any trouble with it but reckoned that no news is good news. When I checked the map it looked like it had been a tropical storm over most of the Caribbean, picked up speed as it headed to Florida but was starting to lose ferocity and head out to the mid Atlantic. Just as well I'm a maths teacher and not a meteorologist because I got it wrong! Mind you, so did Michael Fish in 1987!
