In our drop-in this week we were admiring the amazing window display shared on facebook of a dress made entirely of poppies. At the same time, one of my friends came in with a poppy she had crocheted and details of the pattern . I mentioned that Pontyclun Primary School will be delivering poppies that the children have been making to us and other businesses in the village for us to create window displays for Remembrance. The ladies from the drop-in have taken the bull by the horns and are busy knitting and crocheting poppies for us so that we can emulate the dress (although we may only manage a mini-skirt) as a backdrop for the children's artwork. Keep and eye out for the window displays in the village after half term and as a teaser here's some pictures of the inspirational window and a few poppies made by Ruth and myself.
