I'm Back

I'm back from my 10 day trip to Thailand!  My partner and I spent our time in Bangkok exploring this bustling city. We used public transportation and/or walked to all our destinations from our hotel. Bangkok is not an easy walking city so I would advise using alot of caution especially when crossing streets. We rode the sky train, took boats along the Chao Phraya River and canals, walked along the bustling major streets and  small back streets using our map or just our common sense to guide us. I'm sure we often walked where few tourists ventured.  My partner encouraged me to take these adventurous walks and I'm glad he did. I feel I got a real sense of life in Bangkok. Time did not permit us to travel more throughout Thailand as we had planned. I guess we'll just have to take another trip in the near future!

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!

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.
