More Cacti

We have been traveling to lot of soccer games in far away places recently. That gives me plenty of time to crochet cacti in the car. So with my bag of yarn at my feet and hook in my hand, I crochet away the travel time.

I had some heavy white yarn in the bag and decided to try an 'albino' cactus. I combined the white with some fun fur that I had and really liked the results. Sort of weird and funky.

What do you think?

Chag Sameach - Passover

Well, it looks like we won't have our usual 28 people for our Passover Seder this year. We are down to around 20. But we will still move all the furniture out of the living room and set up tables. Then we cook, cook, cook - matzah ball soup, turkey roast, noodle kugel, potatoes, broccoli, fruit and cookies for dessert. There are not any small children this year to look for the afikomen, but my 18 year old son says his friends still like to look for it. So we will have BIG kids hunting all over the house to earn the prize - a candy bar. I love Passover.

I have had lots of orders for my L'Chaim wine cozy. I expect they are for hostess gifts for Passover. L'Chaim means "to life" in Hebrew.
