Was thinking that myself !
there may be some spares when the second batch of LBEs arrive.
tee hee! Am glad I'm not the only one who succumbed to temptation and ordered a second batch!

Anybody want to hazard a guess at the breeds of swamp dragon depicted?

out of 22 lbe's 3 BT's not a sport one - quite a few ordinary sports all of which I've already got. got to go through the dragons to see how many sports of them, but no clacks, no prizes - so if anyone gets two prize sheet tickets? good home and good price offered. :thumbr:
yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift, which is why it's called the present.

No spare prize sheets I'm afraid but I'll be sending stamps in for trading this time before they all expire. I keep forgetting to do it I have these good intentions then life or more likely work gets in the way

Dorfl suggests after much looking at the dragons in The Last Hero

Flared Smut (Red hat)
The Nothing Fjord Blue or Gurrley's Leaper (Bauble)
Avery's 'Epolette' (Sock)

Other breeds are available

Wanna give a dragon a home for Hogswatch (and ever after)

Hold tight. There will be a new competition in the Stanley Howler Journal in the New Year based on the Hogswatch sheet.

Well no prizes or triangles in my LBE batches, but they were quite modest batches compared to some of you (if only I had more funds! :wink: :twisted: ) so my hopes weren't high, but I did get some nice sports, a dead letter stamp and 2 more clacks messages :D

I am still missing the Unburnt Hat sport, though - does anyone have a spare and would be willing to swap? I have a spare Red Stocking sport and some spare 2015 sports, so PM me with what you are looking for :wink:

Also, I have a spare bottom left corner selvedge that I'd happily trade for a top left corner . . .

Horray! Mine came today!

From 8 LBE (a large sum for me- I blame not being able to buy some the week before :D ) I got two clacks messages (first time I've seen them), a seamstress sport (new for me), UU Penny farthing sport (new for me), Hogswatch stocking sport (ditto) and a Man without Dog and a Fools Guild sport. Fills a few holes although I am thankful that I bought a Hogswatch sheet as I can forsee me raiding it for the other sports.
