O is for the Olympics

I can’t let the letter ‘O’ pass without mentioning the Olympics. Here we are in the middle of the Rio games 2016 and team GB is doing brilliantly. I particularly like watching the cycling (no surprise there, since I’ve mentioned cycling quite a lot here on my blog!)

Today, I thought about the colours of the Olympic rings, blue, yellow, black, red and green. They represent the five continents of the world: Africa, Asia, America, Europe,and Australia.

I’ve added my own version of the Olympic rings here: made in my bags, just for fun.

And so you can see the designs, here they are, one colour at a time.

    You are so incredibly creative. I love your image of your bags forming the Olympic circles! Awesome! My favorite color is and has always been blue. All of those blues are positively fabulous!

      Thank you Julie. I do have a lot of blue styles at the moment! Partly it’s because I just ‘found’ some of them on my last visit to one of the tanneries I buy from. The blue nubuck for Queen B was only available in a few skins, so we’ve only been able to make 5 of them. Oops!
