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.

Don't you just love the Aldi stores.

We had one open up about 1/2 mile from my house in Chicago and I just love it. Unfortunately I would have to drive about an hour to get to one in Florida so do not. With the price of gas anything I would save would be eaten up but I can't wait to get back to my one at home.

Love the rooster rug. I to use a small one under my feet at the sink. Especially on the hard tile floors.

Oh dear, you make me feel that I should keep that painting. I don't mind keeping linens - they fit in a drawer!
