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.)

More crafty stuff.

Wondering if I should start yet another blog for my non fabric crafts....no, I won't.  I did that for my sketching a year or so ago, and that blog is gathering cyberspace dust now.
Val showed me how to make some more cute origami last week.  A man's shirt, and hearts made out of bank notes.
Well, not real ones, although the original instructions used actual American dollars bills.  Mine are made from the pages of a souvenir notepad which has imitation Aussie bank notes printed on one side.


 Today we attended a full day workshop at Melbourne University which is where the Calligraphy Society hold their meetings and workshops.  Val is more interested in making cards than I am, but I decided to tag along just for the fun of it.  There were about 10 ladies in the group and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Here is our tutor Marg, with a few of her card creations on the table.   She took us through the makings of six of them, and the following photos are my own work.:


 Each card had a different technique, and we only scratched the surface.  I can see why people become addicted to card making!

Marg had made each of us individual name plates.  Next time I go somewhere that I need a name tag I'll be taking this!
