The Lemon Squeezer

Last Thursday my partner Tom and I decided to leave the city and drive out to Harriman State Park, one of New York's largest state parks located about 30 miles north of New York City. There are over forty marked hiking trails (225 miles total) and another 57 unmarked trails. 18.8 miles of the Appalachian Trail are located within the park. We decided to hike out to the Lemon Squeezer, an unusual rock formation in Harriman that is located at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail and the Arden-Surebridge Trail. We started our hike, which was about 3.5 miles round trip, from the Elk Pen Parking Area on Arden Valley Road. Although it rained several times during our hike we still throughly enjoyed it.

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!
