What's New

These days Anni prefers the view outside the window to the view into the Pesky Cat Designs studio. When I first starting sewing on a regular basis she was very fascinated by the movement of thread on my sewing machine. Often she would be so bothersome I could not work. That's how the name of my shop evolved. These days she is very bored of the machine since it's become such a routine. Now squirrels climbing trees and other outdoor events seem much more interesting. While she was busy at the window I sewed up two new purses and added them to the shop. Both of them are made from a linen-look upholstery fabric in chocolate brown and are fully lined a cool retro-look owl print cotton fabric. Tomorrow I will be adding a couple more new bags in the shop. Stay tuned!

Neutral color bags like this are my favorites. So elegant. I love the new periwinkle jewel-cut purse, too. The lining for that is gorgeous! I have a thing about linings...and this one is perfect! Oh, and your Pesky Cat is a cutie!

Your new collection is really cute and so is Anni!
Your kitty is cute!! My kitties have been fascinated with all the hubbub going on outside, too. Spring brings lots of new things to look at.

Beautiful new creations!

Love the lining-funny how what initial entertains them is now not so fascinating-it is 1/8 tsp cayenne.

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
