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.

Back from the Break!

We are back from our Wandering vacation. We hit every antique store, quilt shop, junk shop, and used book store in northern Indiana and several in Chicago too. I've gathered new fabric, some great vintage patterns in larger bust sizes, and great books. My prize - a Beany & Cecil box from the early/mid 60's! Will post it all later.
