Shavuot (Pentecost)

Pentecost is the best holiday in the Jewish calender ever! I absolutely love this holiday! For you gentiles that don't know, Pentecost is celebrated seven weeks after Passover, hence his name, Shavuot, which means in Hebrew weeks.

In Israel this holiday called 'the cheese holiday' as well, as it is custom to eat cheese products and no meat. I love cheese and dairy in general so for me this holiday is a feast! I really enjoy it. 

To bring some more spring feeling to table it is custom to decorate the table with flowers, so in stand of going out and cutting some real flowers I sewed some... 

What says more spring then flowers??? 

I really enjoy making them!
