Okay, here's the pattern on my frame ~ it is called Windy Day by W.Cushing. Before getting to the sky issue, want to confess that I increased the black cat at the bottom another 15%. At least it would be closer in size to the yellow cat on the left and a tad easier to hook. Still couldn't get those damn ears to look right but they have been ripped out and re-hooked so many times that I just don't care now.
Now I'm wondering what to do with the sky to make it look like wind. So pulled somewhat darker sky colors for the swirls and took a photo to see if it looked okay.
