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.)

An old friend creates a new Blog.

Oops!! Perhaps I should not refer to Helen as an 'old' friend...some people are sensitive about their age! Luckily, Helen and I have been friends for more than twenty years, so we are truly 'old friends'. This proverb is very apt:
New friends are like autumn leaves, found everywhere.
Old friends are like diamonds, precious and rare.

Helen is a lady of many talents, and has a wide range of interests, which funnily enough coincide with those of my own blog friends. She has edited newsletters for countless community groups over the years and one day hopes to write The Book that will become a best-seller! In the meantime, I have persuaded her to create a blog, where she can write to her heart's content, and via the comments of her readers, gain experience in writing with the world as her audience.

So, dear friends of Patra's Places, I invite you to check out another kindred soul, who loves the good things in life - reading, writing, cooking, travelling, fine china, and old-fashioned afternoon teas! (And don't forget to leave an encouraging comment)
The Barnes Residence.
