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!

Hi Elisa - I wish you many happy sewing hours! Nice to see you back posting! :-)
I love that photo with your colleague!
Welcome home, Elisa! You must be so happy to have returned to a sunnier climate, yet the proximaty to NY must have been wonderful.
Thanks Yael and Dawn. I am happy to be creating again and to have warmer weather but I do miss my new friends/colleagues and my old friends back in NY.
And I also look forward to reading everyone's blogs more regularly and to be inspired by all your creativity, posts and comments!

What a beautiful bag, Elisa! It sounds like you've been very busy! You're back in Florida at the right time since it snowed here in NYC this weekend.

I'm so sorry I haven't been keeping in touch. I'll do a better job from now on. :o)
Amy-yes, I heard it snowed. I did catch some snow back in October when we first arrived in NY though!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I know you are so busy reading and writing your wonderful book reviews.
Hope you and all the kitties are doing well. :)

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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.
