Things Are Looking Up

Slowly but surely we are getting ready for our move to St. Augustine, Fl. I've already purchased new fabrics inspired by the impending move. Blue and white prints, various stripes and ticking, linen and jute webbing. In the past few weeks I've sold a lot of bags to friends and coworkers so I will need to replenish my Etsy shop as soon as I can.

The shop will be closed for a week or so during our move. Once the new studio is in place I'll begin production of a new collection. Can't wait!

How exciting! Nice to hear of your sales too.
I'm sure you will love it. Nothing is as exciting as being able to walk barefoot on the beach, almost the whole year round!

I did not realize that you were moving-I thought that you were splitting your time between the two places. Depending on the windows that your new place has let me know I had this metal screens that fit into your screen so the kitties do not push out the screen.
Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments!

Esme-Thanks for your advice. I'll have to look into the screens. Here in NYC I have screens that are pretty secure but I still always worry since we are on the 10th floor.
Good luck with the move, I'm still unpacking after mine, dying to get it all done and get back into some sewing!
How exciting!!

Good luck with the move!

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!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


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…
