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.

How much fabric do you have, if you can give this much away???

I've spent part of the past five days going through ALL the fabric in my stash. I mean all - and I have 5 big shopping bags full, two smaller shopping bags full, and about 3/4 of a black trash bag - all full of quilting cottons, pieces of satin/silk/fancies for CQ, and other odds and ends.

It feels good to get rid of some things that I finally had to admit I am unlikely ever to use. Of course, this still leaves me more than ample stash to make just about anything I could want, for coats to dresses to quilts to a cq purse and way beyond.
And Frida?? Well I just like this painting.

Not enough. Never enough!
