Dear fellow poppy makers … just to let you know I have over 700 gorgeous poppies of all persuasions sitting on my pool table right now … I had hoped to have the pool table full by the end of August … it’s now overflowing with poppies and joy. Marg and I are pretty sure we can reach 1000 for the November display …. what do you think?
And as for the total of 5000 … we have not even scratched the surface yet and still a year and a half or so to go … we are now thinking 5000 is a VERY conservative number. And we are talking with a number of people about some regional poppy plantings as well. So that’s exciting!!!
Interestingly, when we started out just a couple of short months ago … we thought 5000 would be a stretch but certainly achievable. I don’t think we realised just how this wonderful project would resonate with the crafting community. So spread the word my friends and keep making.
Today I am off on a week long break to Hawaii … looking forward to the warmth of the sun on my face … and the company of women for a stitching retreat.
But have no fear … poppy making will continue while I am away … just a little addicted, obsessed, focused, driven …. hooked!!!!! And I am hoping to get my fellow travellers involved as well. I will try to post photos.
