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.

Handy Gadget -Stack and Store Bobbin Tower

I got this great gadget last week and I love it. It holds your bobbins in a tower configuration. Before, I kept them in a little lucite box that often flipped or got knocked around. With the bobbins in this thing, if you knock it down they don't go flying all over!

It is easy to slip them in and out. You can easily see the color of your thread. And it is really easy to organize - I have empty bobbins in the dark green section on the bottom, and bobbins with thread on the yellow sections. I might have to get another to keep the Singer bobbins in for my embroidery machine.

I got mine from Keepsake Quilting (click on link above), but it is designed by Nancy's Notions. I give it a big thumbs up!
