Remembrance Sunday

I have shown this poppy before on more than one occasion.  But it's still my favourite so here it is again to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.  It is Jennifer Williams' beautiful design and one I've enjoyed wearing for several years now.  So if any of you had not seen it before and fancy making yourself a tatted poppy, I highly recommend this pattern.  It is a little complex as it is made in several parts that have to be put together, but I think it's well worth the effort.  When I made mine, I decided to use the centre from a British Legion Poppy Appeal paper poppy as I liked to keep the link with the organisation and their efforts and it looks like Jennifer has now added a new version to her website that also uses this centre.

I have another poppy I wear as well and this one is crocheted so it is much quicker to make.  I'm afraid at the moment, I cannot remember the name of the pattern but when I find it, I'll come and add a link here.

Best wishes,
