Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!
And hello, kitty, beautiful picture!
A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. Congrats on your front pager yesterday. I get so happy for you when I see your work there. And I can't believe you listed new bags today. Don't forget to take time for yourself!
Thanks everyone! Wishing you all the best as well.

Button Chick: I did list new bags yesterday but at least I did not go anywhere near the sewing machine. lol!

how many takes did the kitty pic take! they never stay still for a good shot, I have lots of photos of my dog' exiting; the room
Thank you all for your holiday wishes!!

REread: Actually the photo of my kitty Anni was completely unplanned. I had placed my christmas tree on a bookshelf and Anni was curious and jumped up to investigate. I quickly ran and got my camera. To get her to look up at the tree I held some ribbon up. She loves ribbons and threads so it only took a few photos to get the perfect shoot!
I forgot to mention how amazed I was that she jumped up on the bookshelf and didn't knock any of the christmas cards over!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
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…
