Autumn is Here!

Yesterday Autumn officially arrived here in NYC while the weather remained summer-like. Today the temperature is 81F and I ran my morning errands wearing a light t-shirt, jeans and my comfortable Wolky sandals. I went to go to the UPS store, the Union Square Farmers Market and the hardware store. After arriving home I realized I also need cat litter, cat food and groceries. One of the disadvantages of living in the city is that you have to carry all your groceries home since driving and parking is such a hassle. The advantage to living in the city is that you can order anything you want by phone or on the internet, including groceries and have them delivered to your home in an hour! So I ordered everything I needed and waited patiently for all to arrive by eco-friendly bicycle. Now Anni has her essentials and my partner and I have groceries for dinner. Tom is already cooking the brussel sprouts, my favorite. I didn't get much done in the studio today but I did add two new handbags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The shoulder bag posted above was a little experiment with a new design. I think it's a perfect bag to celebrate the fall season with!

Enjoy your Autumn glorious colours!
Love the bag!

How cool is it that you can order those things and have them delivered like that. Is it terribly expensive to have them delivered?
Thanks for your comments everyone. :)

Whimsical Creations- The pet store has free delivery and the grocery store is $2.95 for delivery. I do tip the delivery man in each case so it can get expensive. So it's not sometime I do on a daily basis although I would like to!
I never heard of someone who called brussel sprouts a favorite! Usually I hear people hating them :) Handy that you can call for groceries, ahhh wish we had that too!
Gorgeous bag as always!

I like that new bag very much. There's also a pretty pumpkin colored corduroy on your website, looks like a tote with a flap closure and someone is carrtyin it. Love that bag. Maybe it's the same as here just a different color?
I agree, this bag is perfect! The leaf design is too lovely.

Your creativity is to be treasured!
Brussel sprouts are a favourite of one of my sons too, but the other kids won't look at them :)

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.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!


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!
