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.)

Early Christmas presents.

LeeAnn gave me a loverly bunch of...no, not coconuts - pressies! on Saturday night, which included these: a book which I have heard about and wanted for a long time; a packet of Christmas paper napkins (I love paper napkins!); a peacock brooch, and for the rest of my goodies, you will have to go to Patra's Place.



And this is what Ken received: four bottles of different beer in a neat box, with extra bits tucked in!



Rob and LeeAnn are good friends indeed; proof that you can make new friends of people you meet in cyberspace!
