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've lost a friend.

I've got some goodies to write about on my other blogs, but I'm not in the mood for that at the moment. For the past six years I have been visiting an elderly Japanese lady in my capacity as a volunteer community visitor for the Wesley Mission Do Care program. She passed away last Saturday aged 91, after being in hospital for two weeks. I had intended to visit her this week, not thinking she was so close to dying, but I left it too late. Her daughters have asked me to give a eulogy at the funeral tomorrow, so I've just typed out a page of my memories, and I'm feeling very sad.
I'll be back in a few days.
