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.)

Playing with paper....again!

My friend in Japan sent me a package of Washi (Japanese craft paper) for my birthday, and I have been bursting to use some of it. I borrowed this book from our library a while ago, and enjoy it so much, I keep renewing the loan. I know this can't go on, so I found a copy on eBay right here in Melbourne, so I hope to have my own book very soon.

One of my favourite designs is this one, and as I have dozens of swap cards that I don't want in my collection of thousands, I pulled them out and looked for a Queen so I could make this collage.

Couldn't find a Queen, but a King is just as good, so this is what I came up with, using some of my Washi paper.
