in_17_1

The tomato is representative of summer.

In summer, tomatoes occupy a very prominent spot in the produce section of local grocery stores. We have seen tomatoes in varying sizes and colors in recent years; orange and yellow ones besides typical red and green tomatoes.

Tiny cherry tomatoes, misshapen but lovely heirloom tomatoes, palm-sized plum tomatoes…. These tomatoes are so enjoyable not only for dishes but also as a snack.

Here is a picture of a various tomatoes in the glass bowl we arranged. What? There is a tomato with a face!

This is the “amigurumi” tomato made by the doll creator mimiwn. In fact it was only tomatoes mimiwn could enjoy while she had fallen ill and almost lost her sense of taste.

Thank you, tomato!
The “amigurumi” tomato was created with mimiwn’s sincere appreciation. The tomato with lovely cobalt-blue eyes look smiling or even prim.

“Hey tomato, can I carry you as a lucky charm or a key chain for my bag, so I can survive the hot summer?”

(*)The word is derived from a combination of Japanese words “ami” and “nuigurumi”. “nuigurumi” means stuffed doll but it refers to sewn fabric items. “ami” means crocheted or knitted. That is, an “amigurumi” is a crocheted or knitted doll.
