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.)

Gina, they've had personalised cheques for a few decades in the U.S., I had them in the 1960s. They always had such lovely designs, it was hard to choose. I banked with the Wells Fargo Bank and usually picked ones with Wild West scenes on them, all with stage coaches in them, of course.

Americans use cheques much more than Aussies do, so many even pay for their groceries that way. Yet in the U.S. you will often come across places that don't take a credit card!
