Hi All,

I have been missing for ages although I do check in each day. I am waiting for knee replacements so am feeling miserable. Not doing a lot of stitching although I have been crocheting African Flower Animals. I am trying to make a Dog but some of the instructions on the designs are in Russian - I think. I can translate some but some diagrams with images I can not. I wonder if someone who might speak Russia would be able to help me please. If you PM me I can send you the image. Lyn

Thank You. I have bone on bone in both knees. Joys of getting old and working with jobs that needed me to be on my feet all the time. Hope you aren't suffering too much pain.

It's great to see back here, Lynn - just wish you were feeling better! I'll be praying for a successful and SOON surgery! Sorry can't help with the translation, but I'd love to see what African flower animals are. Take care, feel better! Deb

I Googled African Flower Dog and found this pattern. There's a drop down tab to translate to English, but the step by step photos might be of some help.

Laura, I really haven't gone as I check in each day. We are in isolation like all around the world but I would have been doing the very same anyhow as I can't get around very well at the moment anyhow

Thank You. Hope the first op is not too far away and then the second 4 months later.

I'm delighted to see you drop in but so sorry to hear you are struggling. Prayers for a very successful knee surgery. I wish I could help you with the translation, but I am hopeless with foreign languages. Please post your African Flower Animals in Crafting. I'd never heard of these and would love to see them.

I have tried this but because the words are with an image I can't just highlight the words to google and I can't type in Russian. I will keep trying

Hi Lyn lovely to see you here. Is google translate any good to you?

Have tried to google but as the words are over an image I just don't seem to be able to do it.

Hi Lynn, glad to see you back on here, but I'm sorry to hear you are having some health issues. My Mum has had 3 knee replacements and told me she was religious in doing her physio.
Sorry I can't help you with the Russian interpretation. Have you tried writing to the company and and asking for instructions in English? Love Chris

Hi Sweetie. Good luck with those knees. I did one surgery and it has nearly done me in. I'm going to PM you some suggestions for post-surgery comfort.
