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 been receiving many emails as well as comments on my blogs in relation to Ken's impending heart surgery, all of which I show him, and he is touched by every one of them. Thank you all for your concern and kind thoughts. One of my ex-blog buddies Val (she no longer has a blog, but we are good friends) does beautiful things with paper. This card arrived in the mail from her today:

The blue paper is hand made, and the paper is made from a pair of jeans!! The heart is gold paper (looks black here), woven into the coloured paper, and hand stitched on to the blue paper card. Isn't that fabulous!

I discovered Topsy and Tiger sitting at the kitchen table last night and raced off to get my camera - this is a great sign for a future friendship between our kitties!!
