Poppy yarn-storming

Poppy yarn-storming

When I joined the WI last year, there were a few things I hadn’t anticipated i’d end up doing, and yarn-storming (or yarn-bombing as it’s also known) 6am on Remembrance Day morning under the cover of darkness.  The Tilly Widgets had been knitting and crocheting poppies (and sewing poppy bunting) for months and brought them all together to respectfully decorate Trinity Church Hall in Blackwater, which is the church whose hall we meet in every month.  Lest we forget.

The history of the poppy is explained on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/remembrance/how/poppy.shtml

The poppy has a long been associated with Remembrance Day.  Scarlet corn poppies (popaver rhoeas) grow naturally in disturbed earth throughout Europe and grew in the bare fields left by the Napoleonic wars in the early 19th Century.  After World War One was over in Northern France, the poppy was one of the only plants to grow on the battlefields.  The significance of the poppy as a memorial symbol to the fallen was realised by the Canadian surgeon John McCrae in his poem In Flanders Fields. The poppy represented the sacrifice made by his comrades and became a lasting memorial to those who died in World War One and later conflicts. It was adopted by The Royal British Legion as the symbol for their Poppy Appeal, in aid of those serving in the British Armed Forces, after its formation in 1921.
