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.)

You asked for it!

Now this is NOT going to continue ad infinitum (is that the correct expression, Helen and Isabelle?). Just because some of you were kind enough to comment favorably on my sketching, this blog is not going to turn into an amateur art gallery. In fact the following sketches I did today are meant to convince you that I'm not serious about my drawing! If you want to see some VERY clever art (and a whole lot of photos taken at tennis matches recently!), go and see Sharon's daughter's blog here.

Hi LeeAnn, thanks for your comments and good wishes for Ken. It's not looking good I'm afraid. His doctor has admitted he can't do any more for Ken, and has referred him to a lung specialist, who we are seeing next Monday. Please cross your fingers...

Please let Ken know that I'm wishing him good health and hope that the lung specialist will find something that works for him. And I recognized him in that sketch. I'm afraid you aren't going to convince anyone that you aren't a wonderful artist, Gina.
