Seahorse Inspirations


This past Thursday, after reading Star of the East's post, Nature Inspirations,  I  was so inspired to create purses with seahorse appliques again. Seahorses are quite fascinating creatures. According to Wikipedia "there are over 47 species of seahorse mainly found in shallow tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. The male seahorse is equipped with a brood pouch on the ventral side. When mating, the female seahorse deposits the eggs in the male's pouch, which the male then internally fertilizes. The male carries the eggs until they emerge, expelling fully developed, miniature seahorses in the water. Throughout the male's incubation, his mate visits him daily for "morning greetings". The female swims over for about 6 minutes of interaction in which they change color, wheel around sea grass frond, and finally promenade, holding each other's tails. Then the female swims away until the next morning." Amazing!

The purse posted above is now available in my shop. I've got a few more in production as well. I think they will make the perfect summertime accessory!

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.

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!
