Another Iceland

Hi Guys. Windows are nearly done! (show you pictures tomorrow) Forgot all about this post in draft. Been there since last week... So here it is!

Nearly a year to the day I posted a picture of my Iceland Map. I was asked to make a framed picture of a map of Iceland by a school who wanted to auction it off to raise funds for charity. The family who actually asked me to do it, lost their bid of £35, as the Map was sold for £75, so they asked me to make them one too... (obversely (a lot) cheaper!) Hmmm, well, I'd put it off and put it off, because it was a lot of work and I found that there were no two maps of Iceland the same, so it was quite hard getting a good likeness. I mean, a few missed out squiggles on the left side of Iceland and you've lost a whole town and the airport! And a few more added to the right side and some folks would lose their sea view to an extra mountain or two!
They wanted the map to look the same, or near enough and there had to be a troll on it! It's a tiny bit smaller, slightly different. I hope they like it (and pay me!!) Hint Hint!
