Wonderful Yael, of PazzaPazza, has challenged us to do a blogpost on "Time" today. So here is my contribution, a little late in the day, but better late than never! 

This weekend was Daylight Saving Time here and that meant that we had to advance our clocks forward one hour. No one informed the stray rooster that lives across the street so he was crowing an hour later than his usual time on Sunday morning. Well, that depends on how you look at it. He crows at sunrise and that has not changed. But now sunrise happens at a later time. Well, at a later time according to the clock on the wall. 

So that brings me to my next topic. I now have an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings to work in my studio. That thought makes me realize how much I think about time.  How much time do I have, did I spend my time wisely, did I just waste time, did I spend enough time? I realize I am fooled into thinking I have extra time. The rooster knows best!

I am all smiles about your lovely post Elisa!
And you see: about daylight saving time I even did not think!
Have a nice day! Kuckerikuuuuu! :-)
I wish a rooster lived across from me--I love the morning sounds they make :-)
One of my favorite sayings about time is attributed to the Indians (Native American, of course).
Something like "only the white man can add an hour at the end of the day and think he has more time". I'll have to look for that one again to get it right. But that's how I feel about DST.

BTW, nice purses!
Carol-Thanks for leaving your comment. I agree with you on DST. I realize I am fooled into thinking I have an extra hour. The rooster knows best. :)
Dawn- I find his crowing so comforting! The kind people that own the meditation studio feed him. When the owner drives up he comes running to her car. It is quite a funny sight!
Yael-Thanks for your wonderful idea for a blog post! It was quite timely of you to think of that right at DST. ;)

I found this somewhere online and thought you might like it" In Germany the rooster greets the dawn with a hearty "kik-a-ricki." Greek roosters crow "kiri-a-kee," and in France they scream "coco-rico. Of course American roosters say cock-a-doodle-do. Lol!

Build Your Own Purse

I've been working on creating a listing in my shop that will allow my customer to "build" their own purse. I am playing around with a lot of different ideas at the moment. The listing will include a choice of exterior fabric in several colors with a selection of coordinating cotton print fabric to choose for the interior of the purse. There will be a selection of my applique designs to choose from such as cherry blossoms, a bird on a branch, seahorses and more. I think my custom listing will be a great addition to the Pesky Cat Designs shop. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

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!

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…
