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.

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
