I am SO GLAD it arrived, finally!!! It took 14 days!!! PFEW, that is a relief, I was already thinking about what to make as a replacement....
Glad you like it, Blair! The pencil case didn't match up completely, but I did the best I could with it. That needle book is actually the second I made, the first was all ready and then when I ironed it, it got stained... GRRR, that is now MY needle book and I made you another one
As for the text on the bag: Ik ben toch niet gek! It means I'm not crazy! In that huge shop you can buy electric stuff (don't know a good English word for that type of shops): tv's, dvd players, computers, phones, mobile phones, nintendo's but also household stuff: refrigerators, ovens, washing machines, hair dryers, stuff like that. They say that they are the cheapest, so that is why they say I'm not crazy / I'm not a fool: Like you are when you don't buy there.
I hate the advertisement on the tv, so loud and flashy, so is the shop. But they do sell a lot and most of the times they are the cheapest.
Hahaha, I'll be collecting bags with Dutch sayings for future use and store them in my wonderful bag dispenser I got from Leslie!!
Sorry, it became a LONG story.... Enjoy your stuff Blair, you were a great swap partner!!
