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.

Lunch and COOL Flower Ball from Paper

I just had a great lunch with my new friend, Ann!!! No photo - we met on Craig's List when I was giving away some fabric, and we hit-it-off. This is the first time we've met, and I think she's great.


I don't really need another hobby, but I've been looking at Folding Trees.com and other origami oriented sites for a couple of months. I have finally found the project that is going to make me "fall" - here is a quick link to Folding Trees.com's cool flower paper ball. It is made out of identical origami shapes glued together. The instructions are in two parts: part 1, link and part 2, link. I love the colors in the photo, but I can see them in a pastel pink and purple for spring, a full-fledged fushia and bright yellow for summer, and I guess, sunflower yellow and pumpkin orange for Halloween!

good luck with these - i saw them and fell in love with them too, but they are far too complicated for me at the moment with all else I have going on.... i'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with though, and your verdict on how hard they are to do!
