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.

The Stash Contest - Beginning

A few weeks ago, I signed up for Pattern Review's Stash contest. Not to win anything, as I'm sure others will exceed my output, but just to get me motivated to sew up some of my stash. I am happy to report, I started today. I have a little party for two good friends and their birthdays coming up on Saturday, so I wanted to make something.

I won't say what it is, but stay tuned for photos. I have cut up and sewn almost 8 yards so far.
