My new housemate

I have a new resident in my condo. Her name - as delivered to me is Angel Eyes. This is a temporary name as to me, Angel Eyes was the bad in Good, Bad and Ugly. This lady is too pretty for that.

Her eyes are an awesome green - more emerald than is showing here. This photo is the one which made me very interested in meeting her. It was taken by feralcatfriend and I want her to have the credit for the photo. I'll post more when Angel is more settled and less shy.

I've always said I'm a sucker for green eyes - and C always thought it was him......... that'll learn him!

I finished the felted bag for DDIL and one for DGD too. I forgot to get the photos first.

Mystic Waters is still on the needles and I'm almost finished with chart C. Five more charts and I'll be finished with that beauty.

So, from my home to yours - Have a very Happy New Year!
This is the 2nd time I've gotten these orchids to bloom - and I've had them almost 8 years. There are now a total of 7 blooms. I'm on week 2 of the blooming.

They are dendrobium orchids from Lowe's. Apparently they need to be outside during the summer and until the temp drops to around 40 at night. Then they can come in and will make buds.

Happy New Year to you too, Gail! And to your family!
"Angel" sure is a gorgeous kitty:) She seems like she has a sweet disposition, too!

Both your cat and orchids are lovely!

I surely cannot redesign that thing on the cover. I actually didn't buy the issue....I am hoping someone more talented than me can help out!
