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.)

Just one little comment...

Ken took the patch off his eye this morning, 24 hours after the cataract surgery as instructed.  After a few blinks to refocus with the other eye (still with cataract) he looked around the kitchen and said everything looked so much sharper and more colourful.  The skylight in the ceiling had been cleaned when the workers put on the new roof, but it was never really dirty - just had a few dead insects lying around on it.  Ken looked up at it and said "I always thought it looked dirty, kind of muddy, but now it looks so bright!" 
Then he looked at me and said "Even you look prettier".   I didn't have an answer to that - back handed compliment maybe?
