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.
