Comment: Congratulations on your new job. I'm so happy for you!!
Response: Thank you so much, Carrii <3 And thank you for your heart rating:-)
I have completed my first five days in the new job, and it was quite okay (I'm a bit impatient with myself and want to do and know everything immediately, and when I don't, I get nervous and think I will never learn it. But I'm working on being lenient with myself;-))
Response: Oh, what a relief it arrived:-) It was only yesterday, I was counting how many cards from this swap are still missing, and I was planning to write messages in the next days. There is still hope they will arrive, yay:-) I'm very happy. Thank you so much for your heart rating, too :-)
Comment: Hi, Brigitte! :) Thank you a lot for the nice postcard. I really love African elephants too, I think they are amazing!
I'm sure you will enjoy the presence of the new family member/s!!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and your rating. I'm very convinced an animal / a pet can change peoples' lives for the better (our cat did:-)) and I'm pretty sure we will rehome another cat soon:-) A big thank you for encouraging me:-)
Comment: Danke für den wunderbaren Brief. Ich hab mich sehr gefreut und werde sicherlich zurück schreiben.
Mein Bruder hat sich auch sehr über die Postkarte gefreut :)! Sie hängt jetzt an seiner Pinnwand direkt hinterm PC. Vielen Dank, dass du auch an ihn gedacht hast.
Response: Ich freu mich sehr, dass dir mein Brief gefallen hat und deinem Bruder die Postkarte. Und ich freue mich, von dir zu hören:-) Danke schön für das Herz:-)
Comment: Thanks for your wonderful card, I love it! I tried knitting a few times but I couldn’t understand it, and crochet was much easier for me :D definitely worth a try, YouTube is full of tutorials! Best wishes from the Netherlands
Response: Thank you so much for your rating and hint about crocheting tutorials. I will definitely give it a try:-)
Comment: Hi Brigitte! I am honored to be the recipient of your first PC through Swap-Bot. I'm new too. I've only been a member for a month or two. I loved the eel card! Thanks for sending my way! - Sarah
Response: Hi Sarah, I'm so glad you liked the card :-) I had bought it on e*B* small ads just a week or so before I joined this swap. I'm convinced that was the way it should be :-)
Comment: How are the socks you are knitting for your sister going? I would love to find a pair like the ones on the card you sent. They look really cozy.
Response: I'm only on the first half of the first one - luckily, I have still got 3 weeks until they need to be finished:-)
Oh yes, the ones on the postcard look so warm and cozy. I haven't tried cable-knit patterns yet though I've always wanted to. But it looks a bit difficult...
Comment: Beautiful postcard! I do love sewing on my front porch and use a treadle sewing machine that is over 100 years old. I don't think its ever too late to learn to sew. I never made clothes, but do repair clothes, or sometimes alter them to make them fit a little better. But I like to make quilts. Its a fun and useful hobby.
Response: Thank you:) I'm very happy you liked my postcard. I should really just give it a go and start learning to sew. We have a few pieces of fabric at home I could use for trying:-)
