The knit and crochet poppies--some with buttons for centres and in a hue of reds--were created in 2018 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of armistice. 7000+ poppies make up the display and were contributed by parishoners and people worldwide. Here's a more in-depth story about the poppies.

Spent some quality time w my knitting machine, hoping to make hubs a sweater. It takes one 474yard ball to make the back, so I'm in standby mode until more yarn arrives from @MaryMaximUS— Purple Pony Art 🦄🐦🌈🍁 (@purpleponyart) December 28, 2022

I added two new books to my craft bookshelf this month, Amazing Circular Weaving and Weaving On A Little Loom.
Buying craft books can be a little iffy, so I'm happy to recommend them. Both have good, clear photos, and instructions not only for the projects, but for those new to weaving. You'll be able to get up and running with successful results in no time.
Although I took a class at art college on weaving with a four harness loom, I couldn't master it at all and it left me feeling like I'd never weave again. Turns out I have a lot of enthusiasm for little looms. TBH, anything can become a loom as long as you have something to hold the warp threads. It could be a tissue box, a piece of cardboard or a scrap of wood :-)
