Thanks Sean, I actually have a ton of patterns on my site, and one of my specialities is crocheting with yarn made from sheets, a craft that is fun and so useful. You raid the linen closet, you make yarn from your findings, and then you crochet them into a beautiful machine washable (really important in my dusty mountain town) rug. all the best!

Not to worry Lynne, next year is right around the corner! I recommend starting in August on the succah decorations, and packing them away carefully, as last minute as I am generally know to do is a bit too much pressure, sigh! all the best!

Thanks so much Linda, chag sameach to you too! My husband and I once stayed in a trimmer in Limon, a yeshuv really just across the street from this coastline area. Many options there, and centrally located.

Feathers are such a lovely thing to make out of paper, and with Yom Kippur in just two days, and Succot following four days after that, well there is no time like the present than to whip up some great... Continue reading

I'll be the first to admit, crafts for Yom Kippur are rarely something I've had time for, as the holiday occurs just four days before Succot, for which I am crafting up a storm. That said, this year I am... Continue reading
