I have always been a big fan of Hello Kitty! I even have a Hello Kitty dressed in kimono that my daughter sent me from Japan when she lived there. I'm not sure, but I think Hello Kitty is Japanese copyrighted. I just know that she has been a favorite of mine for quite awhile. Wish this kitten would be as good natured and sweet as Hello Kitty!! No new projects to show, the kitten doesn't let me get much done while she's awake (she is presently asleep next to my foot here at the computer!).
