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.)

A weekend away.

Our neighbours across the road have a holiday house at Phillip Island, where they retreat to most weekends for a break from the family home. They have been asking if we would like to accompany them one weekend, and we finally got to go yesterday. Phillip Island is about 2 hours drive from where we live, so we set out around 9.30 am and arrived at the G's house around midday (D had to stop at a supermarket on the way to buy something she had forgotten to pack). This is their house.

The weather was not conducive to swimming or strolling around the town, as it rained most of the time (and NOBODY is complaining!), but we still had a lovely relaxing time, just chatting, eating, drinking, etc.

Here is the Lady of the House in her lovely kitchen...hands in the sink as usual, she said, as I took her picture!
