A Red-tailed Hawk and More

Yes, that's a Red-tailed Hawk on my neighbor's air-conditioner laying in the sun spreading his wings! He seems to like that air-conditioner because my partner Tom has seen him there several times. The first time I saw him I thought he looked so out of place in New York City. But there's an endless supply of pigeons here so I am sure he's doing just fine. I wonder if he could be a descendant of Pale Male! Tom, who took the photo, placed our cat Anni on the windowsill so she could get a look. Notice how the hawk is looking our way. I am sure he noticed Anni as well!
   
Now it's on to a different topic. Yesterday I purchase some new cotton print fabric online. I use this fabric to line the interior of my handbags. I always fuse it with one layer of light fusible interface to add structure and durability. This is the first time I bought cotton print fabric online. I hope my purchase will be as nice as pictured! I especially love floral prints and enjoy selecting which print will work best with a particular handbag. Sometimes I create an applique design after being inspired by a certain print. Other times I select the fabric based on which applique I plan to use. It's all part of the creative process that I really enjoy! 
Before I finish up this post I want to thank a very lovely person who wrote to me yesterday via my Etsy shop to let me know that she posted about my Wayfarer Purse in her blog. Thank you Mariel! You can see the post here. Check out the blog, "Or so she says...", for a daily dose of great ideas!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…

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!
