I just discovered that my Offbeat Messenger with a pair of seahorses made it to Etsy's front page today! Thanks to Etsy for selecting this treasury and thanks to Kira Ferrer for curating this stunning sea-inspired collection.
Today I also learned that I was featured on Karen Fields lovely blog. Thanks Karen! See the post here. Karen is a wonderful artist and her one-of-a-kind original paintings are available in her Etsy shop, Karen Fields Gallery. Her work is beautiful and the colors are stunning!
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!
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.
NYC 2007 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.
