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 eye is okay!

Thank you dear cyberspace friends, for your concern re my eye. The procedure was a bit scary - uncomfortable even, but not actually painful. The specialist at first tried to work on my eye with me lying flat on my back, but I kept on flinching as he poked around in my eye, so after about 15 minutes he moved me to a sitting position with my head in a kind of cradle that held it steady while he worked. That was much better for both of us, and it was all done in a few minutes. I didn't need to wear a patch, or refrain from reading or any other close work - just wasn't allowed to drive for a few hours, as the eye was a bit blurry. But by the time I went to bed, it was fine, and has been ever since.

Still, I will be glad to see the end of September. Ken and I have again begun looking for another car for me, and he found some on the Internet tonight, so it looks like we'll be out and about on Saturday. I have been invited to show a selection of my table cloths to the Melbourne Playing Cards Collectors Club on Sunday. I have about a dozen card table cloths - the ones that fit over card tables, and have ties on each corner to secure the cloth to the table. The cloths have card related designs on them such as hearts, spades, etc., so I think the club members will enjoy seeing them. Most of the members are ladies over the age of 50, which will count for a lot!

Oh dear, poor you. I've been a bit behind in blog reading so I didn't know about your eye. Glad it's over and recovering. Hope you go from strength to strength.

Gina,
I am so glad your eye is ok. Having someone poking around in my eye would be about the most bothersome thing I can think of!
