Looking Back and Ahead


In the next month work begins on the new Harris Tweed collection for fall 2011. I've already imported a nice selection of tweed from Scotland in beautiful shades of deep ocean blue, heathered blues, speckled grayish blues and a variety of check/plaids. The main theme will be earthy browns and coastal blues. Can't wait to get started!


And wishing all the dad's out there a very Happy Father's Day!

The colour scheme for the new season sounds great!

I just noticed how your two tone carryall looks smaller on the above picture compared to the listing photo on the right, where you are leaning forward...
It just shows how hard it is to show the real size of our bags!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, Elisa!
Loddelina- Actually I do not notice that much of a difference in the bag size in the two photos. But I do notice that I look real tall in the photo above since my legs are cut off in such a way that it's hard to tell where my legs end. hehehe
I know what you mean about size, Loddelina--it's the same with almost everything that goes on the web--even jewelry.

Elisa, you look beautiful AND tall!
Dawn- Thank you! My dream was to be tall but at 5'3" all I can do is create an illusion. lol!
And yes, it is hard to get a true to life/size picture of anything. I notice that when I crop my modeling photos too much the bags appear larger. So I always try to get as much of a full body pose as I can.

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.

New Harris Tweed Patchwork

Just added a couple of one-of-a-kind Harris Tweed patchwork bags to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. It will be the perfect bag to pair up with your favorite fall or winter coat and add a pop of color to your day.
To create the flap I cut out squares of Harris Tweed wool and interface each piece. Then I play around arranging the different colors and patterns. That's the most fun part. When I am satisfied with the result I begin to sew them together. And that is how the patchwork flap evolves.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead. Enjoy!
