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.

Despite my resolutions

I did go to a couple of stores yesterday. I have a lot of flannel projects this year, so Joanne's $1.49 a yard flannel (see at was a big attraction.
However, I stood in line for an hour and fifteen minutes before I made it to the cutting counter. By the time I had everything cut, stood in line again to check out, and walked out of the store, I'd been there for two hours. But I have all the flannel I'll need for my Christmas sewing projects.
However, that was the end of my sewing related activity for the day - I was exhausted.
