Patra's Place

Patra's Place Hello to whoever is reading this! It is mostly in the experimental stage, but like everyone else, one has to start somewhere. I have a cupboard full of UFOs and SINS, which I have added to today with a win on ebay: a Semco wall hanging - a map of Australia with the floral emblem of each state. Like so many of these early kits, it lists Semco floss/thread numbers, so I spent half an hour with my conversion chart, noting the corresponding DMC floss numbers on the instruction sheet. What a pain, but necessary if I am ever to stitch this item.

Hi Gina,

Well, I am out here reading. *grin* And I think I am still going to cut up my half-finished supper cloth for crazy patch. But I do have some other interesting old family stuff that I would never cut up - but I do need somewhere to leave it to in my will - no children here either.

Are there any public collections out there that accept women's fancywork????
