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.)

Family photos.

Lee-Ann and a few other ladies in our little blog community have been posting photos of their ancestors on their blogs, and I have enjoyed looking at them all. Here are some of my Mother's parents, and Mum as a little girl. Next week I will put some pix of my father's side on here; I have photos of his family going back to 1860 - my great-great-grandparents and their children and children's children, etc. I think I will eventually remove all my family photos from this blog and relocate them to my life story (Patracat's Memories). I don't think that blog has many readers (it is more a personal record for me and my family, although anyone else is welcome to read it if they want to plough through my ramblings!) so the photos can stay here for a little while until I get around to transferring them.

Thanks for coming to visit and for leaving such a lovely comment. I am having computer problems at the moment and I may not be able to blog over the next week. I hope the problem is easy to solve but with computers everything seems to be difficult.

These are beautiful photos Gina. I have alot of photos like these too and love to stare at them and imagine what they were like etc. Mum has albums full of family photos and is gradually scanning them all to keep safe and sound on disks. I am sorry I have'nt been around much lately.. my chickens are both ill and I have been so tired. Your day at Lee-Anne's sounded marvellous.... she is a rare find indeed. I hope you are getting rain like we are today. I think it has poured down for the last twelve hours here... Yippee!xox Nicole.
