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.

New Pending Project

My aunt has a Japanese doll she received as a child from a friend's father who had travelled to Japan or Korea. She is not is the best of shape. So my assignment is to make her a new kimono. She picked this orange cotton for the main body. I will find a blue to match to make the obi and the under kimono. She needs some new hair too. The colors were selected to match the Turkish carpet in DA's apartment.
