5000 POPPIES NZ

Hi There,

I have been very slack in posting how we are going here in NZ. It has been very busy with ANZAC Day approaching fast.
At this stage we are at over 26,000 poppies now and still counting and will be receiving poppies till April 1st 2015. The effort here in NZ has been overwhelming somedays. So many crafters have got behind this fabulous project and made poppies and offered their time to stitch panels. I am incredibly proud and humbled by what we have done.
So on Anzac Day 2015, 11 and half panels will be displayed at the Airforce Museum in Christchurch, three will be at Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre and six and half will be displayed at the Navy Museum in Devonport, Auckland.
Then later in the year they will be on display in other places so more New Zealanders can see our tribute.
