Well i thought 'deception' might be an interesting title for this day - a federal election no less, quite suitable. Just thinking how many forms of deception, good, bad & surprising there are.
Starting with this purple patchwork quilt i made from scratch after dinner last night for an early morning pick up. The customer brief was 'lots of purple', keep it plain & to use a few childhood shots for a 6x6 patchwork quilt for a 21st today. Done!! The photo transfer paper worked quite well. It's actually quite detailed, alas, smoke & mirrors people!!
I'm quite good at making life look easy, but i can assure you, having a husband at war & hearing the news we lost 2 more soldiers, well it breaks my heart & worries me to my core. In order to not worry the children, i keep how much it affects me, to myself. I certainly talk to them about what happens, i've never hidden the news from them, they are proud of what their daddy does & are also realistic about the danger. Alas, my husband is my whole world, these soldiers who were killed yesterday, they were someone's whole world too.
So after being school-parent-of-the-year today, i glanced over at the reason i do all this P&C stuff, my children, only to find 2 sitting on the roof of my car, one sticking a cup cake to the inside of the windscreen & one completely missing. I looked at one mother (whose child was leaning out of my car window throwing a ball) & yes, people were watching . . . i said "imagine being the mothers of those children". I can't even bother to defend my children's actions!!
Have less political Sundays everyone, love Posie
