Because I am grateful for their eternal sacrifice xx
These are my contribution to the 5000 poppies project here in Australia....I crocheted mine and made one for each of my children using Jen’s Very Simple Poppy Pattern. Instead of using black yarn I am doing them in all red and then attaching a black decorative button for the middle.

"Our initial aim is to “plant” a massive field of handmade poppies in Fed Square Melbourne on Anzac Day 2015 as a stunning visual tribute to Australian servicemen and women for more than a century of service in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. We have been fortunate to have Phillip Johnson, Australia’s premiere landscape designer join us to develop our display, and we are gathering together over 100,000 poppies from all over Australia and indeed the world for our project."
