Can anyone help me with this?

Thnaks for all your help......I found the video and it was very helpful....appreciate it.

I received this but do not know anything about it.  It is a kind of embroidery but everything is written in a different language and I am not sure what to do with it except follow the picture.  Would love to know if this embroidery has some kind of history to it....thanks for any help?

Please say a Prayer or send good Karma

Good morning everyone!  My sons friend "Andy" is a very young man with a young family who was sent to Vanderbilt hospital on Tuesday in very serious condition.  His condiont at the moment is life support and the why's are not known.  If you pray could you take a minute and send one or if you believe in the power could you send some good Karma his way....appreciate you!

Postcard Swap

In one of my groups we are doing  a country pc swap.  Our first month was France and here is a pic I hope she will like it.  I not only get to play with my "stuff" but I learn as I go along what could be better.  What I did was printed out on computer fabric a pic of the French Alps and then added some luminer paint to hi-lite some areas and added beads to the snow cap mtns.  I also added french knots for the deepest blue in the water and added some beads too hoping to  give it more dimention.  I blended some gold luminere to the rocks and added some wine and wine glasses with french knots for the bubbles coming from the glasses and grapes.  I hope you like it Lisa, enjoy.
