Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

My Photo
Location: Melbourne, Vic., Australia

I am married to Ken. We have no children except a cat and a collection of Australian parrots, finches, canaries and a dozen hens.

These two photos show an Echidna we found on the side of the road. Unfortunately the colour in the first photo is all wrong - the second pic is better. But the first one shows how the little critter curls up into a ball so predators will leave him alone! But in the other pic, Ken is trying to coax him into some material, so he can pick him up and move him to the side of the road out of danger.

Gina, is this little one like a porcupine?

Yeah, the Aussie version of a porcupine I guess. But they are a different species altogether, I think. The quills are very different on each animal.
