:: Last week, The Golfer and I spent a day in town. One of the things on the to-do list was to drop off poppies for the 5000 Poppies Project in dedication to our grandfathers who fought in WWI.
This is an amazing project; if you click on the link above you can read all about it, but briefly, two women, Lynn and Marg, wanted to gather 5000 poppies for this commemoration Anzac Day and worried that they wouldn’t reach that target. They now have a staggering 225,762 poppies!! These poppies are being made into a “carpet” expected to cover 800 square metres. With enough poppies gathered for their project, they are encouraging people to yarn bomb their own localities in time for Anzac Day. Such an amazing project!
:: Do any of you remember the chair that I rescued from a nature strip collection?
:: I’ve been doing some Secret Women’s Business sewing. These bags will be for sale on the Boutique TradingTable at the MSG event next weekend.
:: Don’t forget the Japanese Quilt exhibition on at Millrose this weekend. If you’re anywhere in Victoria, make the effort to go as it’s well worth it!
