What's New in the Studio

Yes, that's Anni taking a peek behind the curtain to see what is going on in the Pesky Cat Designs studio. Yesterday my mailman delivered two large envelopes that traveled all the way from the Isle of Harris filled with gorgeous Harris Tweed wool. Anni was almost as excited as I was. She preferred to put her head into the envelope after I removed my fabric while I felt each piece of cloth and imagined what I would create with it. I received three different plaids and two barleycorns. That afternoon I cut fabric and created coordinating appliques. Today I plan to sew sew sew. I have to add that it was such a pleasure doing business with Catherine of Harris Tweed and Knitwear . She answered all my emails promptly and shipped my purchase quickly. OK, I'm off to the studio. I can't wait to get started!

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!

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…
