Front Page on July 4th!


Sometime early this morning on July 4th, my Saddle Bag made it to the front page of Etsy's website! I was informed by a friend who sent me an e-mail that included a screen shoot. Thanks Mellissa! I got a lot more hearts added to my site and interest in my shop. My thanks to Lusummers for creating such a cool treasury and including my handbag. Lusummers creates lovely mixed media art that is available on Etsy. One of my favorites is a black and white hand embriodered pinback button. Check out her shop !

Later on tonight my partner Tom and I plan to watch the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks from the comfort of our apartment. We only get to see what reaches over the top of the buildings in front of us but it's still a lot better than being outside and trying to find a spot among the huge crowd of spectators. I am not sure if Anni, our kitty will enjoy the fireworks as much as we will! Happy 4th of July to you all!

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.

Time

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!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!
