More Patchwork


In the next hour I'll be adding new Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. I will also be adding a Harris Tweed messenger with a bird on a branch applique.  Last week I received a shipment of Harris Tweed from Scotland and quickly got to work using this iconic textile. In stock right now are a blue check weave, a Macleod check and plain weaves in medium gray, mustard and honeysuckle pink. Deep brown is soon arriving. It's always so hard making my choices when I place an order and I am never quite sure which color or check will be popular. This past holiday season the medium gray was the most requested tweed. If you are interested in a custom order just contact me via my shop. Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Hi Elisa,
Thanks for your message of concern.
I am safe where we live but there is so much devastation everywhere around it is heartbreaking.
Your new work is gorgeous.

I like the contrasting colours-how is Annie this morning?
Thanks for your wonderful comments everyone! They really make my day.

Esme- Anni is fine. She went out for her supervised walk this morning. She sat and watched birds most of the time and was happy as a clam.
Sandrine- I am thinking of you and glad to hear you are safe. News of the flooding is heart breaking. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

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!

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…
