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.

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…

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!
