Hallo Corry and Heleen,
I would love to go along. A perfect opportunity to sew or make something I would normally not do (because I'm mostly into clothes).
My first swap!
I hope I can life up to all the expectations.

Leuke swap hebben jullie ervan gemaakt. Ik heb er over nagedacht (anders reageer ik altijd wat vlotter), maar deze keer doe ik toch maar niet mee, ik heb nog zoveel dingen te doen en ik had me voorgenomen die jaar minder te swappen, ik ga het nu toch proberen!
Ik wens jullie allemaal veel plezier!
