Harris Tweed Spring 2011




Yesterday I added a couple of new purses to the shop made from Harris Tweed wool in a beautiful heathered blue weave. I was able to choose this gorgeous cloth from my large selection of samples that were recently sent to me from Scotland. As soon as I saw the gorgeous flecks of colors in this particular cloth I knew I had to order it. Included in my last order was a brown check, olive green, soft peachy pink, two light heathered blues and a deep ocean blue. I'll mostly be creating my Harris Tweed Collection as per custom order for the spring/summer. 


Yesterday an early morning walk lead us here. It was a great way to start the day. Wishing you all a wonderful rest of the week!

Kristin- Always so nice to hear from you. Yes, I am very blessed to live that close, only about 4 blocks or so. Some days I still feel like I am dreaming. lol After living in NYC all my life I really appreciate all the natural surroundings here. :)

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.

10 Year Anniversary

October this year was Pesky Cat Designs 10 year Anniversary! Although I've had an outside job for all those years I always made time for my creative endeavors. I have a Bachelor of Science degree but did originally attend an university of the arts. I painted for many years and then later discovered my love for creating handbags. This month I had two sales from a customer that has purchased 18 handbags from my shop! It really made my day to realize I have so many loyal customers. They have made it possible for me to keep creating and doing what gives me so much joy!
