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.)

Our wedding anniversary.

On Sunday, Ken and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary. When it falls on a weekend, we usually go out somewhere nice for dinner, sometimes on our own, sometimes with friends. This year, we decided to go for a drive in the country, and end up having dinner at a country pub somewhere. But after speaking to LeeAnn and Rob, we decided to join them at the Kyneton RSL for dinner at 6.30 pm. What a fun night! We drove to their cottage first, then went to the RSL and enjoyed a delicious meal, after which we went back to their home and stayed until after 10 pm! LeeAnn wanted to show me a special table cloth, but ended up showing me most of her incredibly beautiful collection! How wonderful to find someone else who loves vintage linen as much as I do, and has an equally fantastic collection to drool over!

She gave me several goodies to bring home - card, champagne and chocolates for us both, and an apron and two other embroidered items for me! The apron can be seen here, but I haven't photographed the other two yet...give me time! In the meantime, here is a pic of Ken and I. LeeAnn had to take several until Ken was satisfied that he looked at least recognisable, if not handsome; I think he worries about what gets published on here - grin! I got a lovely shot of Rob and LeeAnn, but will be emailing it to them first, before putting it on here. They might not want that..
