Region 16 Block of the Month 2021 week 18

Region 16 Block of the Month (or week) 2021


What is an empty circle? Maybe a ring? This week, a profusion of rings, reminding me of bubbles floating upwards from a bubble machine. Rings can be so useful, a keyring, rings join together to make a chain. Of course, there are jewellery rings, some precious and evoking memories, some making a statement. Then there are ring roads, many of which are far from perfect geometric shapes but still called ‘circular’. Rings may be called hoops, who remembers a hula hoop craze, there have been a few? What about the substantial rings seen at quaysides far and wide for the purpose of mooring a boat?

What rings, circles or hoops are you thinking about?
