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!

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!
