What do the stats say about our little project …

I have just been looking at the last week’s stats for our blog and noted (with some excitement I might add) that there have been 5,542 views of the patterns in the last week alone.  Does that mean that 5,542 poppies are being made as I write?  Oh if only.  I guess they won’t all make it for the Fed Square launch but goodness me … I think we are well and truly out there.  And that is thanks to all of you … and of course all of you who follow, comment and share on both the blog and Facebook … that’s the way social media works.  Like a ripple on a pond.

So end of last week we were at 3948 … I’ve counted 61 so far this week … so that tips us over the 4000 mark.  Congratulations … an amazing effort …. we could not be more thrilled.

This beautiful image was posted on the Facebook group last week by Julie Vascocz … I thought I would share it with you.  It features her poppies with her grandfather Rupert Thomas Collier’s medals, helmet and field glasses.  Thank you so much for sharing Julie.

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.
