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.)

Friday Night Show And Tell.



Over there, over there,
Is it still Friday Night
Over there?


With apologies to James Cagney, I'm hoping it is still Friday night in the USA, so I can get in by the skin of my teeth to Kelli's Friday Night Show and Tell.
Here is mine for this week: commonly known as a Cookie Jar "over there", this belonged to my MIL, who gave it to me about ten years ago (can't remember just how long ago, but it was LONG ago!). She would never have called it a cookie jar in her day (she's 95), more like a biscuit jar, if indeed that what it was. It isn't airtight, so I don't keep biscuits or any other food in it. It just sits on a shelf in our kitchen with other interesting things that aren't useful, but are too pretty to throw out!
