I should mention that the sewing was long overdue. The afternoon before the first Girl Scout meeting, I realized that I had forgotten to sew on the patches. Desperate and mildly ashamed, I stapled the patches to the vests. My older daughter was fine with this, but my younger daughter was silent and forlorn. I asked her what the problem was, and said "I'm embarrassed!" I assured her that the stapling was temporary, and promised that I would properly sew the patches in time for the next meeting. Which, in fact, I did.
So now, with clear conscience, I can return to my First Amendment project. In the mean time, please feel free to inspect my fine stitchery.
