Workbasket free pattern....

Carolyn has magic fingers!  She took the Workbasket free designs - pink basket and blue basket - and worked them into this wonderful book.  She put her mind to work and designed it just the way she needed it. 

 It holds tiny little supplies and dainty scissors. 

 Her laying tool even slips through silk ribbon loops down the side for closure.  
 She used her own color combination....Gloriana in Bell Flower and Granny Smith Green, Belle Soie in Creme de Menthe and NPI #4951.  Such a beautiful combination. Stitched on 40 count linen. You can download the pattern for free at
 Have fun with your own creation!

Happy Thanksgiving....

The turkey shot out of the oven
And rocketed into the air,
It knocked every plate off the table
And partly demolished a chair.
It ricocheted into a corner
And burst with a deafening boom;
Then splattered all over the kitchen
Completely obscuring the room.
It stuck to the walls and the windows,
It totally coated the floor;
There was turkey attached to the ceiling
Where there'd never been turkey before.
It blanketed every appliance,
It smeared every saucer and bowl;
There wasn't a way I could stop it,
That turkey was out of control.
I scraped and scrubbed with displeasure,
And though with chagrin as I mopped
That I'd never again stuff a turkey
With popcorn that hadn't been popped.
Happy Thanksgiving
 From all of us at The Craft Center

Hardanger scissors....

Two beautiful Dovo scissors that would be wonderful for hardanger.  The cost of the silver scissor is $53.19 and the red and blue handle scissor is $69.00.  Dovo produces scissors that all of our stitchers want....
The cotton candy scissors that we carry are also a tiny inexpensive little scissor that work well for hardanger.  The have plastic handles and a snap on sheath.  These work well and are a good price point for the beginner at only $7.00.
