You are just fabulous Mimi, and quite the inspiration! I enjoy all your photos and reviews. I just watched your very helpful obi belt tutorial and have now printed off the pattern :)

You're just way too clever. I would not have looked at that pattern ever but you definitely made it into something way better. Love the red belt too. Always look forward to see what you've made :-)

I love the way you take an uninspiring pattern, create something fabulous from it and then style it so brilliantly as well!
