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.

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
