The Heart of the 5000 Poppies Project …

I just wanted to share a comment from one of our followers/contributors that was posted on the comments page because it’s really the absolute heart of the project and has  made my heart sing … the sentiment in this is beautiful.

So thank you Lenny for sharing …

Hi crafters … In talking with my 82year old Scottish mother this morning, she spoke about people who were involved in WWI in her home town of Dundee, and that she would like to remember each; she went on to talk about her father a docker in WWII and the Queen Mary a hospital ship and some of the stories of WWII; Dad’s family were in London during WWII and Africa and my husband’s family were the New Zealand contingent in Italy and Africa; my daughter-in-law’s family were in Europe serving. So as we are such a multi-cultural family we will be sending you lots of poppies. We don’t have any Australian members who served in those years under the Australian flag- but the flags are many in these theatres of war and the remembrance just as dear. Cheers, Lenny
