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.

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!

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!
