A Big Thank You and Farewell

To my readers,

I would like to say thank you very much for following me these past three and a half years. My goal when I started this blog was to share information about kimono with the English-speaking world, and in that respect I think I've been able to help in my own small way. As of today, this blog has been visited over 130,000 times and I am grateful for all of you that have come to it over the years.

The truth is my life is shifting right now in a lot of ways, and has been for some time, and I would like to return to just enjoying kimono rather than seeing them as a project. That means while I will still be relatively active on my Kimono Lady Facebook and Tumblr accounts, I am going to stop posting updates here.

I’ll leave up everything I’ve written as a resource for others, and as a “going away present”, if you want to call it that, I will post text-only translations of all the remaining months I have left on my big motifs translation project (August-February) by the end of this month (September, 2013) as my final post.

I’ll also be happy to keep answering kimono questions you may have, so if you have one, please head over to Facebook or Tumblr. I hope to see you around there and keep spreading the kimono love!

Oh... I understand. I'm relatively new here but already had LOTS of great info from you which I am REALLY greatful of! =)
And I'm glad you still keep this blog up and that you will be active on Tumblr and Facebook at least. =)
Thank you! ^^

And yes, I'll still be lurking around Tumblr and Facebook posting occasionally. Hope to see you there! :)

I cannot thank you enough for this comprehensive resource on seasonality! I have been searching for days and days to find a compact taxonomy of the complexities of seasonal connection to pattern, and reference. I wish you all the best.
