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.

On the Cutting Board

I posted about this pattern last time - McCalls 5589 - it reminds me of the 70's. Well this is the fabric I have that I thought would be great for a summer top. Not cut out, just thinking about it. What do you think, is it a match?
Yesterday, I was at JoAnn Fabrics in Columbus, Ohio. I had to go up for a meeting. Can anyone tell me why there are seven or eight Joann Etc.'s in Columbus, and none in Cincinnati?

Anyway, in the clearance dept. I found this nice poly/rayon blend - the two shades of peach are printed on the material, but the pinks are rayon thread. I think this would make a great skirt - probably the Burda 7947, view C (on left) or A (on right). What do you think?
