Remembrance Day

The 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month. At this moment we all bow our heads for a minute of silence. The Last Post plays.

I would like to share with you this beautiful video of a choir immortalising in song the stirring poem - In Flanders Fields by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae 3 May 1915.


  1. What a beautiful performance - perhaps I am biased because that is the choir at the university where I teach. We had a moving Remembrance Day service today this year, too.

  2. Shoot! I'm at work and I can't see your video here-- will try and catch it at home. I have a BIG QUESTION for you..... I love hexagons, but find myself stuck w/ a project going on a decade, now, because I'm using the plastic templates which, frankly, I don't love. I'm VERY eager to try paper, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to try your fussy cut template. I see in your store that there is a 1 inch hexy template.... this feels like a stupid question, but does that mean I use 1 inch papers with it? I visited the Possom Blossom.... but if I wanted to be thrifty, can I make my own? What weight of paper (not a specific number, but.... like cardstock? copy paper?) is good? I REALLY SO GREATLY loooooooove some of the fussy cut hexys in your collection-- omg-- what a gift!
    If you can write, I would love it, but no rush-- I could spend DAYS on your blog. It's wonderful-- thank you!
