Lucky Wednesday

Etsy in Polish by Hare and Drum

Yesterday I was quite lucky to be featured in two front pagers! The treasury above was created by the very talented Agnieszka of Hare and Drum and features Etsy artists that are either Polish or have Polish heritage. I was born in the USA but both my parents were born and raised in Poland.  Agnieszka is originally from Poland and now lives in Montana, USA. She has an amazing shop that sells fiber jewelry, hand embroidery and home decor. The works are whimsical and beautiful and I am the proud owner of two of her creations. Thanks Agnieszka for including me in your wonderful treasury!

Beckoning Autumn by NansGlam

The stunning treasury above was created by Nan of NansGlam and was inspired by the upcoming fall season. I love the vibrant colors and all her selections. Check out Nan's Etsy shop, NansGlam,  for gorgeous classic, romantic and vintage jewelry. Her work is dreamy! Thanks Nan for including me in your beautiful treasury!

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.

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!

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!
