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.)

Time out for relaxing, and something to relax in!

Last month (the last month of summer here in Australia) seems like a bad dream now. Autumn in Melbourne is just about the best time of the year. We can still have rather warm days like today (33 deg.C), but the weather is much more pleasant overall -just right for indulging in a snooze in Ken's Christmas gift to me - a hanging swing-chair. He finally got around to installing it a couple of days ago. It is supposed to hang from a chain, but that brought the seat too close to the ground, even when the chain was doubled over itself, so Ken is going to mess around with it to see if he can shorten it. In the meantime, he hung it from the rope top, and I have to stand on something to get into it, but that's okay. It's great! Like being in a small boat gently bobbing in a lake.
