Columbus Circle Holiday Market Update



My first batch of watercolors sold out at the Columbus Circle Holiday Market in NYC! Yeah! Besides designing purses I also work with paint. I've been painting almost all my life. I've chosen a water-based medium for my current work because its fluidity allows for spontaneous and unexpected results. I do not work with a preconceived idea. Instead, I let the improvised results of the initial painting process to guide the development of the final image. My works are left untitled to invite viewer interpretation and participation. The two pieces posted above are done in watercolor and ink. 
I do not have any more purses at the market. Sorry! But you can go to my Pesky Cat Designs shop to find a nice selection of my handmade handbags there. In case you are interested in my watercolors, I did drop off another batch at Galeria Galou's booth at the Holiday Market!

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.
