Crowd Sourced Craft: 5,000 poppies and counting!

Those who know me, know that I love community projects. I had heard about this a while ago http://anzaccentenary.vic.gov.au/5000-poppies/ but couldn’t think how I would tat a poppy to contribute. Today I stumbled across a poppy pattern! http://www.cariad-tatting.co.uk/ if you are interested in seeing how far beyond “5000” poppies this has gotten, have a look at this blog http://5000poppies.wordpress.com/.

Barely a day after writing the above I found this in my inbox from Georgia’s online tatting class- they are having an event where people can tat these together I think… anyway- a Jon Youseff poppy pattern: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/ioli/2009/IOLI2009jonpoppy.pdf so we are getting spoiled for choice now!

Then the newsletter from the Victorian Tatting Guild arrived- also promoting this poppy project it really felt like the universe was promoting this project too. It’s very exciting, and I love being part of these sorts of projects – so am adding another project to my list. šŸ™‚

So, I wonder if you will contribute to this project too?

As always, Happy Tatting
