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.

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!

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!

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!
