Sew little time

Molly’s school has an upcoming auction to raise money for scholarships. In addition to donating a gift certificate to a bouncy house place (because someone wanted her birthday there before she didn’t want her birthday there and the deposit was non-refundable), I thought I could whip together a little peacock cape and donate it to the cause.

Of course, because I am me, I waited too long to start the project. All items needed to be into the school today, so I started cutting out the pattern on Tuesday, I was up until after 11 p.m. sewing on Wednesday and I finished the darn thing last night. It’s not nearly as nicely done as the one on Etsy and I ended up using some glue in some spots instead of sewing (because sewing in tiny little circles is hard!) BUT, it is done and out of the house!

A friend asked me, sweetly, today if Molly was sad to part with it. Nope, she didn’t care at all. She actually asked to be the one to give it away and then she even forgot about that.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
