Last year I purchased the pattern to make a poppy brooch from a lady called Pam Kirk who developed this design and sells the pattern, donating the money to the Royal British Legion. I started this, fully intending to make it in time to wear in November but needless to say this didn't happen and once there was no pressure to get on with it I'm afraid I shelved the project at the point where all the separate petals had to be assembled and the general finishing off done. I came across it this morning when I was looking for something else and decided that I really would get it finished and am pleased to say it is done well in advance of this November. I will have to be careful not to put it away in too safe a place though or it could disappear again!! The original design was for a red poppy but I much prefer to wear the alternative white version for peace.
Do take a look at Pam's website where you can find details of how to order the pattern and I see there are pictures of the flower in many other colours too. So far she has raised £17,000 for the British Legion which is brilliant.
