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.

No Sewing But A Lot of Thinking

This week has been hectic - I've been trying to recover from my trip, then had to finish a big grant project and along the way deal with a severe hit of stomach flu. So no sewing being done right now, no photos of finished things done - in short, survival mode.

However, before I left, on some website that I can't find the reference for right now, I found this photo of a white trench. I immediately thought about my pledge to refashion for March and April - and my cream colored trench. This looks like an interesting refashion. I could cut the length and use some of the material to re-fashion some cuffs on the sleeve. New buttons and buckles - hum, sounds interesting.
But I'm thinking my next project (after I finish off Zman's quilt) will be the Dana Marie X shirt. I might use that great pink and green japanese cotton I got in Victoria for the X, with a plain white or pink for the sides and short sleeves. It would make a great spring/summer top. What do you think??
