I couldn't update this blog so often because of...
I noticed my first pregnancy in late December.
Soon after that, I felt sick and became unable to do almost everything.
My boyfriend began cooking and doing everything for me.
We had been waiting two years for our baby so we are very happy now.
These days, my condition is getting better and can eat much more things than before.
So I think I could make new items and update this blog more often soon.
Now I'm preparing my new give away to share my happiness with you. Please wait for a while.
Last Friday, we went to the hospital and saw our baby. It's just 1 inch long (* v *)!!!!
Now I call my baby "Tomato", because it's the best food for me. Even when I couldn't eat any other foods, I could eat only Tomatoes.
I enjoy my days with "Tomato" in me.
Thank you very much again.
Have a beautiful Sunday!!!!
Thank you very much for all your comments on my blog. I'm reading them one by one and whenever I read them I feel very happy (* v *). Thank you again!!!!

I'm glad to know you feel better, and that you feel in the mood for blogging.
I bumped into your blog, following links and for almost a year I have been reading it every week. Thanks for posting free tutorials and for letting me know more about the beautiful Japanese culture. I hope you continue blogging until the big day arrives.
Take care, eat lots of protein and don't forget your folic acid.

Wow Mai! Congratulations!!!! May god bless you and the little one! Take care of yourself and dont exhaust yourself sewing for long lengths of time!
Looking forward to the little things you'll create for the little one :).
I have been very suspicious that you might be pregnant now since you have been so quiet!!! I am so very happy for you!!!! I hope you will be feeling great again soon and will be enjoying all the little movements of your little tomato! In the Western world they tell you that you have to be several months pregnant before you can feel any movement. I felt my first moving at 12 weeks and my second at 6 or 8 weeks. ENJOY!
~Hugs from Emily xoxo
