Remembrance and Memorial Day Banner

Created By Stephanie

The fourth picture is in honour of Remembrance Day (Nov 11 in Canada is called Remembrance Day, not Veterans Day). After the end of World War I, John McRrae penned the poem In Flanders Fields. It mentions poppies growing row on row. I wanted to stitch something to remember our soldiers, so modified one of your poppies designs to include the words Lest We Forget. I hope we never forget. Im attaching the words to Flanders Fields for your reference as well, as it will make the wall-hanging make more sense. 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. - John McCrae I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
