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.

Daisy, Daisy, Pansie Too

Another vintage pattern from the recent collection. This is dated 1971 - daisies, pansies and - maybe roses in the middle?? - laid out to adorn your pillowcases and sheets. I've never made a set like that, although I've thought of it before. I may have to do some "spot" embroidery on my sheets. Maybe the daisies in yellow on green sheets? Or not.
