Seahorses and Sea Glass


 Earrings from Sea Glass Designs




The handbag above sold to a lovely customer living in Quebec, Canada.
The sea is a big inspiration for my work. See my post below with the beautiful photos of Fire Island, NY. My parents loved the sea and would often take my brother and I to Jones Beach Island off the southern coast of Long Island, NY. I would spend the day collecting seashells, building sand castles and day dreaming. 
Later on as an adult I would continue to take trips to the sea with my parents. My father would go fishing while my mother and I would sit by the seashore painting the landscape with our watercolors. 
A while back I did a search on Etsy.com to find items with an ocean theme. I came across a shop called Sea Glass Designs. They make jewelry and art from natural sea glass, pottery and china shards gathered from Novia Scotia beaches. Absolutely beautiful work! You must check it out.  I bought a fantastic pair of  earrings made from white seaglass with stamped silver plated seahorses. They are posted above. I love them!  The sellers were so nice as well!

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.

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!
