Ethnic or Olympic?

I did this piece for the basque stitch (TAST) last week and as I look at it today, (after watching the Olympic Games Opening ceremony)  I can see I have used most of the Olympic ring colours.  Purely coincidental.  I have called it ‘Ethnic Blouse’.  Basque stitch was fun to do and is now a favourite. 
You can see more inspiration on basque stitch over on Pintangle .

I just wanted to do something a little bit different this time and not use the usual inspiration – nature.
Now for a Nana story – My grand daughter and her mummy were playing games before bedtime and  were both giggling, when GD, Lilian, ( 3 1/2 years)  stopped and looked at her mummy and said
“Mummy, you are the right Mummy for me”.  Isn’t that just the cutest??

I always admire what you do with your Tast stitches Di, but this is one of my very favourites.

Lovely sample for basque stitch Dianne. It's even lovelier to hear little Lillian's words, such a darling!! Take care.
