Poppies For Today


I thought I would post a picture of some poppies I painted quite a while ago.
This reflected my thoughts to everyone with today being remembrance Sunday for the fallen on all wars and the situation what is happening today in Afghanistan.
For about eight days both me and my partner Jim had a really bad cold and chest problems, thankfully this is clearing up but I got busy doing other things!, trying to catch up on duties around the house I hadn't done while being held up with a cold.
I have a nephew who is proudly in the Coldstream Guards as a soldier serving in Afghanistan. The situation is rather hairy for all the poor lads out there, Jonathan asked me to make him some biscuits and send different things so Aunty Faith has been busy baking biscuits. Only tonight did I manage to thread a needle again stitching those lovely green hexagons and OH MY! how Ive missed sewing but sometimes duty calls to do other things. I wonder what everyone else has been doing over the weekend.
Perhaps finishing those Christmas presents? or like me busy baking and doing other errands. Everyone has been in my thoughts so Ive not forgotten about you and I must catch up on every ones blogs. Take care everyone and keep on smiling and stitching.

Unfortunately I have been too busy doing other things to get any sewing done. Hopefully tomorrow. I love your poppy painting. Glad you and Jim are getting over the illness. It must take a lot out of you.

Faith, your painting is beautiful. Poppies are very much a symbol of solidarity and rememberance for us in Canada and like you we remember our dear ones braving Afghanistan.
