Blushing Birds and New Purse Designs

Yesterday I found myself in front of the computer just as a treasury was opening up. I already had my selections ready in postersketch so all I had to to is copy and paste. Blushing Birds, was inspired by GollyBard's gorgeous watercolor painting of two cardinals. There are so many lovely shops on Etsy. Every time I curate a treasury my search for new items leads me to many more gorgeous discoveries.

On another note, this past week it's been a little quiet at the Pesky Cat Designs studio. I've been busy with lots of outside activities so my trusty Juki and I have gotten a little rest. This week I hope to finish up drafting a new purse design that I will be introducing to the shop very soon. First a pattern is drafted onto paper, fabric cut and a new purse sewn up. If I like the final piece I'll trace my pattern onto sturdier paper stock. Creating a new design is always challenging and exciting. I'll keep you posted on my progress so stay tuned. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!

great treasury. I love your machine it looks like a simple work horse. they are the best
PretaPawte- Yes, I love my machine. It only sews a straight stitch, that's it, but it will sew through the thickest fabric without missing a beat or breaking a needle. Semi-industrial rocks!

The Button Chick- OK, here's a hint. It will be large enough to fit a 13" laptop and it's design is inspired by a bag that some professionals carry.

Esme- Thanks for your comment. :)
Can't wait to see the purse design! Very exciting!
Beautiful treasury. Can not wait to see your new design.
I so wish I had more creative and talented bones in my body! Those cardinals are just fabulous!

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
