This Week in the Studio

I've been busy in the Pesky Cat Designs studio and my normally neatly arranged spools of thread are now in a state of disarray. Balance, my mini art feeling from Artmind pictured above, was reminding me to slow down and take a break. So today I decided to take a trip on the Long Island Rail Road and visit a friend for lunch. I had a wonderful time and just got home a couple of hours ago. I decided that today would be a studio-free day.
Of course I can't stay away from the studio for too long so tomorrow I'll be back sewing up a storm to get my latest work in progress finished by Thursday. I'll also be adding a couple of new bags made from chenille in robin's egg blue, to the shop late morning. Stay tuned!

It's nice to take 'me' time. Sounds like a fabulous way to spend a day.

A well deserved time off - everyone needs to recharge the batteries...
This robin's egg blue chenille is yummy, I love the messenger with the brown bird and two buttons!

Glad you took the day to relax and have lunch w/a friend. We all need some quality down-time now & then.

Nothing beats some time off & come back with fresh ideas! I'm so happy that Balanced is reminding you of that! Enjoy & I wish you the best of holidays, Elisa.
Thank you so much for all your support! You're the best! :)

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!
