Doodle Bag - Claire Fradette

Doodle Bag Hooked By Claire Fradette

My little doodle bag is the result of a class I took in Ancaster, Ontario, given by Wendie Scott Davis. It was hooked with our stash of wool strips left over from other projects. Without the use of a pattern, we were given free rein and encouraged to “doodle”. My little bag is the perfect bag for my tablet.

Poppies, Hooked By Betty Austin

In Flanders Fields 

by John McCrae

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 your quarrel with the foe:
To you, from falling hands, we throw
The torch; be yours to hold high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow 
In Flanders fields
