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.)

Tonight I received an email from a lady who read one of my blogs where I've mentioned my opshop buys, and she told me about her blog which is all about opshopping in Melbourne:
"I Op therefore I am"
It is really great - go have a look! She is planning a bus tour of opshops - hey Brigid, Connie, Sharon, and all you other Melb. opshop lovers - this we gotta go on!

Gee whiz, Gina, aren't we slack! How come we have only just cottoned on to this?! I suggest this person needs to be nominated in the next Australia Day Honours for services to humanity. Let's go!

She's in my feed!

Blessings and bliss
