This is the view from my window early this morning. Forecasts call for about 8 to 13 inches of snow across the New York metropolitan region today. Schools are closed and many people are staying home as you can see from the photo. I plan to venture out soon to get some groceries and some kitty food. I have several grocery stores within walking distance , less than one city block (264 feet), so all I need to do is put on my boots and trudge throw the snow. I do plan to spend most of my time in my studio today finishing up some new designs. I was sick with a cold this past week so I was not able work in my studio for several days. I have a few new bag designs in progress that I plan to introduce to the Pesky Cat Designs shop this Thursday if all goes as scheduled. Stay tuned!
Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
