Shop Update


Just added three new bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. The Cross Body Satchel has been popular so I'll be busy in the studio this week working on more. 
Yesterday I pedaled my bike about 7 miles round trip to pick up some much needed supplies that made it possible for me finish up these new bags. Luckily most of the roads, including the highways, have bicycle lanes. The weather here has been beautiful so it was a pleasure.
Wishing you all a great week!

Wow, sounds so much fun biking to pick up supplies .. how green as well!
Dia- There is a hobby store about 3 1/2 miles away and they carry thread, needles , fusible interface and even some cotton quilting fabric!

Lakshmi- We are car-free so we have to bike for all our errands such as grocery shopping etc. We got panniers attached to the side of our bikes and carry an ice pack when we buy perishables. At first it was tiring for me since I was not in shape. But now that I have been doing this for almost 8 months, 7 miles is like nothing! ha

That's great that you can get a little exercise, enjoy the fresh air, and shop for supplies.

How's Anni doing? I hope she's enjoying the sun!

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
