- A torn and tattered world

Patch #218 Olympic rings


I have mixed feelings about the Olympics as the ideal is so often sullied. But I'm heartened by the inclusion of refugees this year even though their presence is emblematic of the chaos of our world. Certainly the opportunity for people to gather in peace is something to be celebrated.

A note on the making ... the circles of linen were cut and the spirals split back stitched by eye (without any guide lines). Seen better from the back perhaps ...  


By the way, there is one significant error ... did you catch it?

You pulled a switcheroo with the green & red. (Do I win a gold medal?)
