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.)

Americans who love Australia!

I recently discovered this blog, written by Phoebe in Boston. She says she has always been fascinated by everything Australian, and is planning to come to Australia to live in Melbourne for a year, to see if we are all we are cracked up to be. She is due to arrive here in August, but is getting a bad case of cold feet at times! I have told her we are a beaut lot of people and she will have a ball here, and she replied by email, to thank me for my encouraging remarks. But I think there are only two Aussies that have posted comments to her blog (at least that's all I can find), so I'm asking my Aussie readers to hop over to Phoebe's blog and say hi, so she can see that we are indeed friendly and will welcome her to one of the world's most liveable cities!

Gina, you are too sweet! I think even if not one of your readers left me a message,(even though Sharon already has) this post you've made is enough to make me realize there are good people in Australia. :) I promise I won't chicken out at the last minute!!
