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!

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…

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!
