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.

Used Curtains

The photo on the left is of the curtains that used to be in my sewing room. I purchased the fabric at Sanderson & Sons in London in 1991. I didn't make anything with it for 10 years!!!!!!! But it was perfect for my sewing room.
But things change. I decided to use the lace curtains that had been in my grandmother's bedroom for my sewing room. I like the diffused light and the pattern. So what can you do with used curtains? Stay tuned!
