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.)

Calendar of Vintage Ladies

Every Christmas, I give my Mum-in-law a specific style of calendar as one of her gifts. She likes the long-line ones that have a month to a page, with one line for every day, so she can write her appointments and reminders on it clearly. I usually buy all my calendars from the RSPCA or the Red Cross, but last week our local newsagent had his range of 2006 calendars on display, and I saw a stunning long-line calendar called "Yesterday's Ladies". If I had enough money, I would have bought all his stock, as I can immediately think of 10 girls who would love it! But I settled for one, and will give it to Ken's mum, as I know she will appreciate it just as much as any of you. And I know she won't mind that I have scanned all the pictures in order to put them on here one by one, knowing how many of you will just love 'em....enjoy!
