his weekend Amanda, surlenil came to visit. We had a great time going all over the West Midlands, Shropshire and Wales. We also dressed up in kimono last night. It is so much easier to dress someone else! I think that's the best taiko obi I ever tied. :) Amanda has the ideal kimono body, so it was so easy to dress her. It was the first time I dressed someone else. Too bad I didn't have a furisode for her to try. Today we're off to Stratford.
