Saturday's View of the Studio


Here's a glimpse of the Pesky Cat Designs studio this morning. I often start a project and then get another idea mid-stream and begin work on that before finishing the first project. This can go on for quite some time with fabrics, appliques, buttons, trims and more scattered all over my very large table until it gets out of hand. Even though it is a large table at 80 inches long, it does have a limit. At one point I have to force myself to stop, put everything away and only concentrate on the work at hand. 

Right now I have two bags and three clutches at various stages of completion. 


Yesterday I added three new generously sized zippered clutch bags to the shop with various adornments.



If you were wondering what Anni's been up to, she's been hanging out on the ledge or should I say living on the edge. I always get nervous when I see her up there but below is a padded and carpeted stairway. I try to tell her that I would prefer that she didn't jump there, but she only gives me a puzzled look like the one above and looks away.  I have to remind myself that cats will be cats.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. Enjoy and be well!

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!
