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.)

September 11, eight years on.

I'd forgotten about the significance of today's date until I went on to my Google home page and noticed the date. It doesn't seem like 8 years ago, but I should know - Ken quit smoking that week after 45 years. I surfed the Web to find out what is happening today in the USA, and found many websites, but I liked this one the best. It shows what they are building as a memorial centre in New York. I was glad to see they apparently are not going to try and rebuild the twin towers - I reckon that would be asking for trouble.
