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.)

America's suffering.

It just can't get much worse over in the USA. A week ago, the east coast was threatened by a hurricane, causing severe floods. Don't we know all about floods here in Australia...Now the Texans are fighting the worst wildfires in their history, after a long drought. Over 1000 homes have been destroyed, and 115,000 aces of land burnt. There are also fires in California at the moment. Again, my heart goes out to our friends over there; we understand the horror of bushfires too.
