James - my name
I am meant to be decorating - my kitchen needs the final sort out, as it's almost finished ... and I have started my spare room. However I have not been playing icons all morning (although I have spent some time arguing with PhotoBucket ... why do companies have to change things that work OK?). I have actually sorted out my tubs - weeded, airated, ready for some plants ... so that feels positive (and it was nice to be outside in the sunshine)

Anyway, here is another set of icons - this time for round 9 of history20in20. I will admit I don't really like "free rounds" - but these are a good challenge away from my normal TV programmes I do every month.

Here are the 3 teasers -

On a side note (for my friends) - in that last teaser icon the man on the far right is actually my grandfather!  He worked for Samuel Williams before and during the war ... as my dad also did during the war.

As ever all these are snagable, although credit would be appreciated. Most of the images (except Cat 2, Cat 5 & Rushed) are taken off the internet - and no copyright infringement is intended.

I must get on with my decorating - I can't put it off any longer!

These are lovely I especially like the texture one, the costume one and artist choice #!. Good job!!

Thanks very much. I am not great at adding textures over images, so decided to do the challenge that way round.

It is good to do a non-TV fandom one for a change

Great icons. I especially like Shape, Rushed, Extreme and Cat 3.

Thank you - shape was an obvious choice, although the crop was hard to decide! Rushed was fun to use as a family photo.

A great collection! I love that portrait of HM, her Golden Jubilee one. Love the selection and choices of cropping and colouring, have gakked 2 and will credit you chuck.

Thank you very much - it is always hard to know what to pick with an open round. Had to do the Queens as an AC through history. I like that picture of Our Queen - she really looks both regal and friendly!
