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.)

Help Australian dairy farmers stay on the land!

I have just signed a petition at change.org  here asking that Coles increase the price of their generic milk so that dairy farmers get a fair price for their milk. I hope you'll join me because dairy farmers are walking off their farms and if that continues, not only will there be no cheap milk, there will be no fresh milk. Since Coles began selling cheap milk in 2011, 45 Queensland dairy farmers have closed their businesses. I wonder what is happening in the other states. We do not want to import milk. There is still a huge need for signatures - only 1400 have signed and we need 10,000. This is important, it will take you one minute to sign, you don't have to have your signature displayed publicly if you don't want that. If you're living in Australia, please sign. If you have a blog, I urge you to put this link up so your readers can sign too. Tell your friends and family, the people at the club, at school, at work. This is important for every Australian.
