Just wanted to confirm that I am
1) definitely interested in your stamps
2) not bothered what the date is when you release them (as long as it's soon!!)
3) hoping that you are OK

Colin,
Also, how about moving the theme from being 'date specific' (Valentine's, Christmas etc) to something more general. In which case it wouldn't matter so much if it was issued late, it could still be Isle of Vue. Or make Valentine's Day 'a moveable feast' on the Isle of Vue.
Just thinking of ways to take the pressure off you.
All best wishes,
Daniel

Thank you everyone for the support, andthe kind thoughts and advice.

The 'problem' has been more of a combination of things out of my control - some very good, some not so good, and a couple of absolute stinkers - and something had to give.  I don't want to put down on a public forum exactly what, but I genuinely hope/expect that it will not happen again.   

It just goes to show that even when you reach a ripe old age and sometimes everything appears on the face of it to be getting rather repetitive and even predictable, it never pays to take anything for granted.

In the meantime I am bashing on with the Valentine's issue - definitely a moveable feast this year - it's almost there  :-)  

Thank you all again.

Sending you positivity, Colin. We've been manic over the past three months with property stuff which has felt much more out of our control than we would have liked but has in the end mostly come together as planned with a couple of pieces still to slot into place though. So very glad not to have missed your issue whilst my attention has been very distracted and looking forward to something exciting from you in the near future. You'll be sending it to a new address though which will be quite a change for us after 21 years!

Thanks for the positive vibes Julian, and congratulations on moving house - I am envious!

I'm working on the stamps again today, so a little bit nearer to completion... I will keep you posted.

Thanks again  :-)

Here's a little work-in-progress photo...

Today I started to bring together all of the individual items that make up this year's issue, just to get a proper overview of what is still missing or needs finishing. Until today it has been scattered across different storage boxes in different parts of the house - as each element has been finished it as been stored separately as space allowed - so it's great to see it coming together as a single piece of work at last.

I've tried to avoid any spoilers in the photo below but best to not look TOO closely!

Still a way to go but as I said, it's all work in progress.  I just want you to know that I haven't fallen off the planet, just yet  :-)

All best, stay tuned!!!

Excellent news Colin. Anticipation is a thing... :)

Might the 2022 issue become the 2023 issue?  Wink
