There are eight in the series.
They were made in 2004.
I had an exhibit that year in Guelph Ontario at the Greenwood Quiltery where they were shown. The gallery part of Greenwood changed into workshop space for the amazing fabric and yarn store donstairs. The shop closed early 2017.
I will never forget the date of the exhibition because it was shortly after my father in law died. Many family members were in Toronto for the funeral, and came with me to the opening of the exhibition the following day.
