Outside My Window

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!

Oh--it looks sooooo cold--we have the same here in Middle Europe--I am really lusting after some warm thaw! Can't wait to see your new designs, and get better soon!

What a view!
I wonder if Anni has ever seen the snow up close or does she only observe it through the windows...

Can't wait to see your new creations!
The view from your appartment window is amazing .... an absolute contrast to the beautiful green fan palms I can see from my studio window!
Hope you're feeling better today. I'm so excited that it's New Pesky Cat Bag Day today!

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!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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…
