Hello Ingvild and Everyone!
Thank you for your patience, Ingvild. We have been talking of so many
things, and yet we have not finished the topic you brought up in the
message below, which you wrote long ago...July 7 is when you wrote
this message...Can you imagine?
You must have been very disappointed (skuffet) over my long delay! So
at least we have written the Norwegian sign for SKUFFET...smile ;-)
So I am now working in your Norwegian SignPuddle to add a few
variations on how I would write these signs for TEGN and
TEGNSPRAAK...and later, you can always delete the signs I put in, if
we all change our minds!
Thanks again for your patience -
