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.)

Sunday lunch with Ken's cousin.

Today we enjoyed a perfectly delightful afternoon with one of Ken's cousins at their home. We were invited for lunch, and as D's wife Y. is Malaysian/Indian, they cook a lot of traditional food from her home country of India, so we had a delicious and very filling meal! They live in a 100 year old terrace house in an inner Melbourne suburb which they have renovated beautifully, and filled with mostly antique and Asian furniture.

I couldn't resist photographing this gorgeous handpainted lampshade, which D. bought in an antique shop in South Australia.
Ken sitting by a magnificent carved screen which we thought may have been teak, but it isn't. They did tell us which wood it is, but now I can't remember!
