Still need to add it to the gallery. But, I did get it finished in time for Remembrance Day tomorrow.
I made this one in the UK poppy style. I wanted the leaf to be on a different angle but… I still like the way it turned out.
I really like this design but I don’t want to work on creating the words inside the ASCII image. I’m just a bit too tired for that kind of work today. Source: Remembrance Day Poppy Lapel Badge | eBay
Why isn’t this a horse rather than a dog? Is this really about animals or something for self-indulgent pet owners? I’m sure there were far more horses used in wars than dogs.
If it is for the pets… why are they always dogs?
I hope everyone wearing a purple poppy is also wearing at least one red poppy, for the humans lost to the wars.

Red Poppy group on Flickr, mostly real flowers rather than designs or art/ crafts.
Frayed at the Edges makes a knit poppy.
Erssie Knits has a crochet poppy but the pattern is not available on the site.
Seawood has crochet poppies (flowers) with a big button in the middle.
Kittyboo Crochet has a nice poppy pattern:
A little poppy brooch, made by me, using Rowan Cashsoft yarn. Here is the (very rough and ready) pattern using UK terms:
Ch 6. SS into 1st stitch to form a ring.
24 dc into ring.
DC into each DC, increasing every other stitch to get 36 stitches.
1 ch [1 dc 1 tr 7dbltr 1 tr 1dc 1ss] 3 times with last ss into 1st ch.
Join the two pieces.
For the centre I really just made it up as I went along. It’s a bit hard to describe but I basically made lots of loops and tied them together (a bit like making a tassle) then cut off the tops and stitched into the centre of the poppy.
