5 Crafty Poppies for Remembrance Day
"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row"
Today countries across the Commonwealth fall silent at 11 am to remember the day on 11 November 1918 when the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare. In honour of those so tragically lost many of us wear poppies, and a handmade poppy is a lovely way to remember.
Wear your handmade poppy with pride. You might also like to donate to the Poppy Appeal for The Royal British Legion, raising money to care for the nation's armed forces in return for the pattern.
