Today I took a cooking class for pregnant women. (I forgot to bring my camera so I couldn't take any pictures.) Some women don't like celery but I love it a lot, so I ate six dishes(small dishes!) for them (* v *).
The picture is jelly of green tea. Sometimes I cook desert what my husband likes (* v *).
Oh, I finished the kimono style baby wear for my Tomato.
When I started sewing it, I didn't know which gender my baby is, and I chose the fabric for Kimono for both genders.
Now I know my baby is a girl(maybe), so I made the belt with pink fabric (* v *).
I also finished the baby quilt.
I hand quilted it singing songs for Tomato (* v *). She will relax with it.
I appliqued an elephant and tulips on it.
Then I made a small bird toy with a bell in it. I made it with cotton waffle knit fabric so it appeared a little strange shape...
I'll make some more toys for her.
Oh, now Tomato kicked strongly!!!! My due date is August 24th and now I'm at the beginning of 8th month.
Good night. (It's 23:30 in Japan now).

What a lucky Tomato you have! The quilt is stunning, I love all the littlee details, like the snail. The kimono is also very beautiful. It does seem like a very practical design for a baby, being easy to access for changes etc. It is so obvious that your baby is going to be born into a household filled with love.
I have enjoyed reading all of your posts. I can't wait to see a picture of Tomato! I can tell she is already well loved. The kimono and quilt are lovely.
