And just like that, the blog is sewn up for the year!

This will be my last post until January, so say goodbye to 2013 but hello to Germany's Geschmeide Unter Teck (Isabell Kiefhaber).

Have a fantastic New Year and see you back here in twenty-fourteen!

I like the somber tone of these branching rings by Israel's Sivan Lotan. Well, except for the first one — that ring's more like, "HEY GUYS, LET'S DO THIS THING! WOOO!" Which I also like.
