Poppy Musings

A week is a long time in poppy land …. I am back with another 40 poppies or more in my hot little hand after a week stitching with a group of women in Hawaii.  I know … it’s a tough life!  But happy to say … once the jetlag is passed … I will back full swing into poppy making mode.  I was delighted to see and hear that poppy making has not paused at all in my absence and with the number of poppies flowing in … we will certainly be up over the thousand mark well before the end of the this month.  Planning has begun in earnest for the display in Fed Square and I am hoping as that many of you who have contributed will be able to see the display, although I am aware that many are not Melbourne based but I will post images.  Watch this space or the facebook page … I will publish firm dates for the display shortly.

I have not yet picked up my mail from the post box … but will do so later today.  In the meantime .. thanks go to Frauline Knippel from Benalla for the lovely little hoard she has sent along.

Enjoy your Poppy Making … more news soon as I catch up on myself

About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.
