I've finally got my scanner working again. :)
And I spent a bit of this evening trying to translate a book I have on
traditional Ukrainian embroidery (or at least that's what I was told
it was) using my English - Ukrainian dictonary.... however it's not
working, and I'm wondering if the book is written in Russian or some
other slavic language.
If someone can ID what language it's written in or even help translate
I'd be indebted.
I've uploaded a "embroidery.jpg" of one page to the files area under
the Kataryna's files folder.
Thanks for any help.
- As far as I can tell, it is Ukrainian. However, I found it difficult to get a good Ukrainian-English dictionary: many missing words -- I wonder how the compilers decided on what to include!

- Greetings Liudmila,
Thanks for the offer.
I can wait until after April if need be.
It's been sitting with my aunt since last year. She also translates Ukrainian
for the locals in her area - however she's been swamped.
I'll work on what I can, and if I manage to get it sorted out before April,
I'll post about it.

I couldn't find your image (then again, it was in 2003), but maybe
this will help you. Before You Know It, a downloadable language

Good Luck Kataryna and anyone else who sees this,
