Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, a little crafty get together with contributors from around the world.Yes, really literally around the world! This week I have gone back to that fun tradition of labeling where all the contributors are from, and if I've gotten it wrong, please let me know! Sometimes this requires quite a bit of sleuthing!
I am writing this on Friday morning as I contemplate just how much time I'll have today to make extra things for our shabbat table, which is even more special this week as it is also the new year for the trees, Tu B'Shevat! Yes we have purchased all kinds of fresh fruit (I'm not going the dried fruit route this year as most are laced with terrible chemicals) and after our shabbat meal we will be making a Tu B'Shevat seder, which like the Passover seder also involves four glasses of wine. Okay, not four glasses of wine for each person in this case, but four glasses and a short program that involves eating fruit in a specific order and drinking both red and white wine. It is quite lovely and I'm happy to say we'll be sharing this tradition with a table full of guests.
Now I just gotta figure out how to make a beautiful arrangement of fruit on the table that won't interfere with the serving of all those Moroccan salads I make each week.....a cornucopia sure would come in handy right about now! Speaking of now, gotta run, so here are the features from last week's party:
That is it for the features, what have you been up to?
