My husband found a dream job in Calgary. So we closed up our house in rural Cape Breton, and moved to an apartment in the city. This is a picture of me arriving in Calgary. I am now the CFA or �Come-from-away�. We are here for a few years. So I decided to document our stay in my first series called �Calgary Days�. This is the first piece. This piece is currently traveling in FAN’s �From Away� exhibit. Techniques: appliqué, embroidery, stumpwork, beadwork, quilting; all work done by hand
