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.)

Gingerbread house.

On the hottest night in Melbourne for years, I had to put this Gingerbread House together for Xmas Day. I waited until midnight for the temperature to drop, but it remained at around 27 deg. c. so I was forced to ice the house and watch it repeatedly collapse because the icing wouldn't set! Result is a very messy gingerbread house, but I don't suppose the kids will care. They'll just pick off all the lollies and leave the gingerbread to the adults!

Hi There Gina;
Belated Merry Christmas.
I've been so out of touch and have a lot of reading to catch.
Can you send me your email? My computer had a major burp and well I'm still trying to recover stuff.
Watch for a new blog to appear soon.
Just keeping you in my thoughts dear friend.

You did a great job - weather not withstanding. I used to make these but haven't in years.
