Light at the end of the tunnel...

Right....that's me almost there really. I got a lot of stringing done today..so tomorrow, just some setting of the ivories, pushing over of claws..parceling up, and posting off. {It is scary, however..just how long those little things take, so perhaps I will get up really early just to make sure it all goes okay??} This bevy of jewels is off to Red Barn Gallery in Cumbria tomorrow {they don't have a website..}...and it will show there for a month. Yay..one step closer to holiday time!

Linky goodness wise.. I love these prints {first 4 images} in Hygge. And I found out that the artist Sanna Annukka designed the cover of Keanes' latest album Under the Iron Sea too....read this great interview with Sanna where she talks about her inspirations behind her art. I REALLY love Scandi-folk style art/pattern etc..{Russian folk art too come to that..} so really love where her ideas are rooted.... I am also hoping that my cross-stitch sampler will have that kind of vibe??

Happy Wednesday!!....ps..this is post 99..you know what comes next!!!???

xox PS..I have just found that Sanna has got up a holding page {soon to be a full website!} - Check it out!
