Olympic Rings In Threads

In honour of the Olympics in London happening now, here’s the Olympic rings in thread.  The colours of the rings on the white background represent the colours found in the flags of the nations of the world. The yellow and green rings are supposed to be interlaced with the others, but I couldn’t get that to look nice.  The blue and yellow rings are rayon thread, the black and red perle cotton and the green, a flower thread.

My stash is organized by colour.  There’s a box of red, purple and pink, a box of blues and greens, a box of oranges, yellows and browns, one of gold and silver, one black and grey, and one white and off-whites. So taking this picture meant hauling out 5 boxes (I have a lot of stash).
I’ll be watching the games as often as I can and cheering on the Canadians.  Are you watching?

    Olympic rings in thread, that’s great! To be honest I haven’t watched the games at all, we got rid of our cable a couple years ago, I feeI a bit like I’m missing out.
    I have my floss organized by color also. I tell my husband that if he doesn’t feel like buying me flowers I’m always happy to have a bouquet of new floss.

    • Thanks. I do love watching the Olympics although I don’t watch any sports usually. I’m always willing to have more thread too! But no husband, so I have to get it myself! Cats are useless for that sort of thing.
