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.)

I made a book today!

Val and I attended a workshop at Melbourne University yesterday - this is where the Calligraphy Society meets and holds many of their classes. This particular workshop was to show the participants how to make a pretty notebook. This is right up Val's alley, so to speak - she loves doing crafty stuff with paper, and was delighted when I invited her to accompany me to the Callig. society workshop.
I took a few photos of course:

This is the group - small but select, as our tutor described it!
This is our cheerful tutor - Melanie.
Here is Val, busy cutting and pasting.

I'm looking quite pleased with my efforts!
