Like the look for Fiona, Michael.

Thanks Adele. Yes, the eyes are non-hyper on this one.

This is spooky, the 'lassie' could be eyes and plaits! I'm liking the elegant Fiona the watercolourist.

Oh definiately a Celt mother had black hair and green eyes ( I think she had a drop of Irish Romany in her genes) and my great grandfather was Patrick Malone from the Emerald Isle. He came over to work on the farms and estates in the mid 1800's and made up part of the population of Galloway irish who settled in this area.

Good craik Fiona. We have a few Pats in our family too.
