Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

First two finished clothing projects

I finally finished the pink nightgown this weekend. They are both from the Butterick pattern. I love the flannel - it is snuggly warm and just perfect on these zero degree nights. The pink one, I'm not so certain about - as my husband said, that is shiny. I think that is the understatement. (edited photo 1/30/08).
