Purses and Snow


I'll have a batch of Semi-Circle Purses made from Harris Tweed plaid available in the Pesky Cat Designs shop tomorrow afternoon. I had work this weekend that took me away from the studio but I still managed to sew up a few purses. This morning, 7:30 AM to be exact, I was on a NYC bus headed uptown along 1st Ave. About halfway to my destination the bus broke down right by the United Nations building. Instead of waiting for the next bus to arrive I decided to hop off and walk. I ended up walking one mile up 1st Ave. through the snow. I had my camera with me so I took a pic of my stranded bus from a distance. I ended up walking to my destination without any buses coming my way. I guess it turned out to be a good decision to plod through the snow!

I hope you were wearing sensible shoes...

I saw in the news tonight there was 60 cm (23") of snow in Washington, DC! Not a very common sight, I'm sure.

OOps, It seems like snow has hit the other side of the planet by now!I hope you do not get too many disturbing events...The snow has also hit Provence which is very unusual at that time of the year...But not expecting any this way!:)
I guess that was a good idea to walk. Great shot! We managed to dodge all the snow here.

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…
