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.)

Back on line.

As you saw by my previous post, I'm back on track with posting text and pictures thanks to a very good friend who is a genius with computers.  He is someone who was a friend of ours about 20 years ago, but moved away, and has only returned to Melbourne a year or so ago.  We happened to mention that we were having computer problems, and he offered to have a look.  To cut a long story short, it seems that Internet Explorer may have been the cause of my problems, so he changed me over to Mozilla Firefox, and everything is now A OK.  Ken and I have several friends who are fantastic with computers, and we have been very lucky to have them helping us with various issues over the years.   Thanks guys - you know who you are ;-)

I've noticed a few bloggers writing about the problems they have been having with Blogger.  Well, maybe it isn't Blogger's fault; if you are using Internet Explorer, why not install Mozilla Firefox and give them a go?  I've been hearing bad vibes about IE for a few years, but up till now I never had any problems, so I didn't take any notice.  No harm in trying something else.

Glad so many of you liked the napkin CDs.  I should have mentioned in that post, that the glue you use for the napkins is important - it has to be the white PVA type glue such as Mod Podge - not clear craft glue or glue sticks.  There is a specific glue for sticking paper napkins to things, but it is expensive, and Mod Podge is just as good.
