Some of my Favorite Things


Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite Etsy purchases. Clockwise from top left, Cute EcoVintage Cap in Grey Linen by Sandrine Marsh, White Sea Glass and Sterling Silver Seahorse Earrings by Sea Glass Designs, Little Leaves Embroidered Pendant Necklace by Edward and Lilly and Balance - Mini Art Feeling by Art Mind. Not only are the creators of these beautiful items super talented, but they are also super nice!


Pictured above are recent giveaway prizes that I won last month. I am not one to enter a lot of giveaways so you can imagine how surprised I was when I discovered that I was the lucky winner! The cool Crocodile Rockin' - Turquoise Earrings which I absolutely love are by Moags and Smeet. The heavenly smelling roll-on perfumes are by Margarita Bloom. I also have to add that both prizes were packaged so nicely. They were as much of a treat to open as they were to receive!

Shop Update: Next week I'll be adding new Harris Tweed messengers to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. There will be slight difference in their design. I will also be introducing some  items made with two new textiles that I am very excited about. So stay tuned!

What cute little gift ideas. How is your little baby? I am home sick in bed. My two are snuggled up next to me. After being gone they now have me home in bed with them.

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!

The Rainbow Bridge

Had to say goodbye to my sweet Anni this past Tuesday. She had been sick for several weeks and after my Vet confirmed that she would not get better only worse, I decided I could not let her suffer. So at around 2 pm she traveled to the rainbow bridge. She had been my buddy for more than 15 years.

When I first started sewing she would often sit right next to the sewing machine occasionally swatting at the lose thread at the end of my fabric. My partner walked by one day and said " Are you being a pesky little cat Anni?" That stayed in my mind so when it was time to name the shop, "Pesky Cat Designs" seemed perfect. She was actually far from pesky, with such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

I will never forget my little sweetie. She will be in my heart forever.
