Mine arrived yesterday and I have to add my praise to everyone else's as this is a gorgeous sheet - love all the detailed artwork and the complex perforation is a work of Euclidian beauty :D Well done that Pixie :thumbl:

I love the colour changes for each of the different sections of the sheet and, if it's not stampy heresy to suggest, wouldn't mind seeing even stronger colours used in the future - like Squigglyx, I have been known to put my favourite (spare) sheets in a frame on the wall. In this case it will be a UUFO . . . :wink:

Re the cataloguing - I agree with Carol, I'd be inclined to list both the sheet and the individual stamps . . . even though the thought of splitting up my sheet puts me in a cold sweat, I'm sure someone will do it!

Ian deserves a round of applause for such a bold idea.
The concept and detail must have taken so much time. I wish I could have raided the bins for reject layouts :wink:
Seriously though, this was very adventurous and difficult to achieve. Well done.

What that man said! Any Roundworld postal administration should be looking to steal the design idea, although I can imagine the reject bin just from the attempt to machine perforate the thing :lol: :lol: :lol:

Real scrumpy does not get made in a factory. You visit the farm and get it in a plastic container.

Next day you have no idea what farm it came from or even what you were doing. :D

For real scrumpy there is no next day, just a blur.

And forget what you were doing, you have no idea who you are...

or what a farm is, or what language you speak, what species you are, what planet you're on, why it isn't a prooper flat one...
