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.)

ANZAC Day. 25th April 2010.

No doubt many other Australian bloggers will have tributes to the ANZACs on their blogs, as I have also done in previous years, so this year I will simply provide a link to the Australian War Memorial website, on which is an excellent summary of the history and meaning of ANZAC Day.
Here are some photos of the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. I took these two weeks ago when I visited the Shrine to see the exhibition of embroidery and textiles relating to war (the photos I took at the Exhibition are on my linens blog Patra's Place).
This is taken from Melbourne CBD, looking down St Kilda Road toward the Shrine. When it was built in the 1930's, they placed it so that it will always be seen from Melbourne without anything being put in the way of that view.


The Eternal Flame.
The Cenotaph.

Dear Gina ~~ Great photos and post for Anzac Day. Lovely pics of the
Shrine.
Thanks for the info about Ken's stents, and his mothers as well. It
all helps reassure me. Am waiting
on the reply of the Specialist/
Surgeon William Campbell.
Glad you Cowboy joke, even if it woke Ken. I went shopping today with my helper, so I am tired, but it is all put away. Even cooked a microwave chicken and will do veggies tomorrow.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Hi again Gina ~~ I love the pics of the Shrine looking down St Kilda Rd.

Thanks for your suggestions about mobile hairdressers. Mine has offered to come here for trims etc
but I have always managed. I will need a perm very soon, and she has
even bought some dry perms for me with no rinsing over the basin and
she says they are good for the hair
etc. So I will soon find out.

Glad you enjoyed the jokes etc.
Take care, Love, Merle.
