A north-east woman behind a knitted First World War tribute has smashed her target of creating 10,000 poppies.
Nancy Duncan wants to display thousands of poppies from Peterhead’s Baptist Church to mark the centenary of the end of WWI.
She urged knitters from across Aberdeenshire and further afield to help her create thousands of the red flowers.
The poppies will be attached to ropes and cascade down the side of the church in a similar fashion to the famous Weeping Willow display at the Tower of London.
Now Miss Duncan has reached her goal and said it was emotional to know that so many people share her dream.
The offshore industry worker, who has been nicknamed Mrs Poppy, said people have rallied to her cause as she pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the conflict.
She said: “I believed the community could rally together on this.
“10,000 poppies seemed like an awful lot, but it just fantastic we have reached the target.
“I am so chuffed we did it.”
Miss Duncan enlisted the help of knitters from the north-east, Moray, Highlands and even Newcastle to help with the project.
She said her thinking has already turned to setting up the woollen tribute down the side of the church in King Street in the autumn.
Miss Duncan said: “Now I need someone to help me assemble the ropes.
“I think it will go up about October 27 and come down around the same date in November.
“That should be enough time for everyone to see it.”
The 59-year-old said she does not want people to forget the sacrifices made by those who fought in conflict between 1914 and 1918.
She has also urged cities, towns and villages to consider their own woollen tributes.
Miss Duncan is still appealing for people to keep making poppies and any extras will be donated to groups in Mintlaw and Macduff who are working on their own displays.
