Say Hello to Right Kitty

Right Kitty is wearing a lavender dress and has bright aqua eyes. This photo isn't quite as clear as Center Kitty, but I promise more pics after the insert is complete.
I smocked most of this last night while watching Criminal Minds (excellent show!) I started smocking at the feet and worked my way up. When I got to eye level, I ran out of the light brown floss I'm using for the kitty fur! Disaster! Luckily, after ransacking my sewing room this afternoon, I found an extra bobbin of it tucked away in a small box where I'd stored some flosses that were set aside for a different project long ago. Whew! I was afraid this was going to be put aside as a UFO indefinitely! Fortunately I was able to finish up Right Kitty while watching the premier of Project Runway 7 tonight.
This weekend I hope to get Left Kitty done. I haven't yet decided what color her dress will be. Blue? Yellow? Coral?
Temperatures are supposed to be pleasant this weekend. I plan to take some photos of recently completed projects, so maybe I'll be able to share the final results of the sheath dress. Cross your fingers for me!

Oh, I love right kitty! Your smocking is beautiful! How rewarding when you can get a kitty done during a tv show. It's the ultimate multitasking!
