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.)

Chooks and cats

A couple of photos to liven up this otherwise boring blog...I haven't much to write about here lately! Isn't this a cute mat? I found it at Aldi's last week, and decided immediately it had to go in our kitchen. I stand on a mat at the kitchen sink, because when I spend so much time in one spot, the tile floor makes my feet and back ache after a while. A soft mat makes quite a lot of difference.
Topsy was sitting in the sun up in the back yard today and looked so cute when I looked out the back door and saw her. She sat there and gazed at me long enough for me to get these pictures. I love the halo effect of the sun on her glossy black coat.

In case you're wondering...

The blog shows nine followers, but I don't get many comments these days, so I don't know how many of them are still 'following'! But in case you are wondering why I haven't been posting much here, it is because I've been keeping myself busy, painting, drawing, and sewing. You must know where to find my stitching blog, but you may not know where to find my new art blog.
