Here is the obijime I made for my taisho kimono and orange obi. I'm not sure if I quite like it. I was planning on pairing the obijime with a red obiage. Hmmm we'll see. I took tons of pictures while I was making the obijime last night and plan to post then later.

I'm on a mission to actually use this blog for its intended purpose instaed of just using it for photos soooo...... here it goes.
A little about me. I'm nurse on a neurology and neurosurgery at a large teaching hospital. Is hard work but I relax in my off time with my guy and my cute little beasty Max (shown above).
I also am obsessed with kimonos. I collect them and am attemping to learn how to wear them. I have pretty close to 30 pieces in my collection at this point. I keep threatening to wear them out but my man will have none of it lol. I hope to post some pictures of myself dressed in my newest set as soon as I get my obi right. I am also working on making a red and black obijime. I will post the process in detail when I start for those who want to learn about it.
