Here it is more recently. Took this photo last night before bed...and the colors are a tad off cause it wasn't very light in the room, and I tried to adjust in the photo software. Bottom left block completed with the couple of inches it needed to fit. And now you more clearly see how much is needed for the outside edge on the upper left square. Plus I turned the top left square and think the colors are better that way to balance out the lights and darks.
Island at War, a very interesting series I highly recommend. It touches on England's failure to recognize the importance of the geographic location of The Channel Island's leading up to War. It deals with occupation by the enemy, The Germans on this small island community and how differently families copped. It deals with the problems of being the occupying enemy. What's the saying, all's fair in love and war.........maybe not in reality.
The Island was fictional in the series, called St. Gregory; but the stories are real, a combination of stories from Jersey and Guernsey Islands. The filming took place largely on The Isle of Mann.
You may recognize the lady above as one of the primary characters from Downton Abbey...and Jammie from Outlander, though in a much smaller roll.
And here is a colorful idea for re-pursing toilet paper rolls. Not sure how easy it is to cut the slices you need to turn a toilet paper roll into a lantern. Not sure I think this is one of the better ideas, but I guess if you were decorating for a childs party it might be cute? I think these are colorful, just not sure how easy it is to accomplish and whether it's worth the time to paint them, or cover with paper? What do you all think?
