Art Deco Inspired Design


I spent an afternoon last week perusing my art books and got inspired by some Art Deco designs from the 1920's. After making several drawings on paper, I decided to go ahead and draw a freehand design onto some blue cotton velvet. I used gray herringbone wool for the main body of the handbag.

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
