    Default Remembrance

    I had a idea to make or should I say turn a poppy as it is that time of the year so I dug out some tulip wood and beech I had laying around.
    I know it is a copy of The Royal British Legion poppy, Now it is finished I will take it to a local branch and give it to them to do as they like with it this Thursday.

    It measures 7" at its widest and 6 3/4" from top to bottom as seen in the first picture. The poppy is 5"

    C & C welcome

    Default Lest we forget - the 11th hour of the 11/11

    Very nice workmanship Derek,

    THANK YOU for remembering Armistice Day eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month; the poppies of Flanders Fields…

    .. LEST WE FORGET…...


    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved,
    and now we lie In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

    Thank you Peter I had great fun making this. I must be getting braver with my turning as i am now not so frightened of cutting up nice turned round items, when I first started I always thought why cut up or make holes in a nice (I thought they where nice then) turned bowl etc.

    Peter.
    Thank you for that I did not know it was in there as I get another magazine. I now have a copy as the good lady went out this morning and got one.

    This is becoming a habit as I have todate managed to Have 1 full article 2 mini descriptions of projects that I had to write and and 4 others like the one you saw where they publish from the forum the magazine runs (that is only the ones I know about)

    I must admit that it is nice to think that people out there think my work is good enough to want to publish it.
