I wasn't quite sure where to post this, as it touches on a few different crafts, so here it is...

This evening is the start of Passover.  On the first (and sometimes the second) night of Passover, families gather for a festive seder, where the story of the Exodus is recounted.  This year, my husband and I hosted a seder with my in-laws as guests.

I prepared a roast chicken and an Indian curry.  My in-laws brought matzo ball soup and a cake.  Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the food.

Here's the table, set for dinner:

One of the required items on the table is a plate holding three matzos and covered by a cloth.  Here's the cloth:

Close up of the cross stitch:

I cross stitched this a few years ago.  Every year I say to myself, "I really should add some cross-stitched flowers or something to the cloth."  And every year I put it back away, and it doesn't come out again until the next year.  So, it still just says "matzo".   Cheesy

And here is the seder plate.

The seder plate is set with horseradish, greens, a hard-boiled egg, bitter herbs, charoset (a concoction of finely chopped apples, walnuts, and wine), and a shank bone.  Note my interesting take on the shank bone, which represents the sacrificial lamb.  Last year, I was setting the table for the seder when I abruptly realized that I didn't have a bone to place on the seder plate.  I grabbed a bit of paper and drew a bone on it.  We were halfway through the service before my FIL realized that the "shank bone" was a drawing.   Cheesy  So I kept it and used it again this year.

Happy Passover to all my fellow Jews. Smiley
