Not two things that have often been linked before if at all. Hopefully thanks to one of our members that will change.
For many years the poppy has been the symbol of remembrance day and you can buy them in all shapes and sizes. Naomi ( Bilgewater) is someone who is in her own words hooked. She loves all things crochet and makes some amazing things. This year she made her very first pattern – a poppy. She is sharing this pattern so that those who want to combine their crafting with remembrance can also make their own crochet poppies.
Please do still make your donation to the red poppy appeal even if you make your own so that the charity can continue to do their amazing work. To celebrate the new pattern and to remember those who were lost in war and fought for freedom Natural Mamas will be making a donation to the appeal.
To mark remembrance day the forum will be turned off to honour the two minutes silence at 11am.
Naomi has made a poppy as a give away to one member. If you would like to receive the poppy please comment on this post to say what remembrance day means to you. The winner will be chosen on the 12th of November.
