A Mini Vacation


This past week I was on a mini vacation sight seeing around town with a friend that was visiting. We strolled downtown, spent days on the beach and had meals seaside. I had a wonderful time!


In between all the sight seeing I found time to cut out a few new items and they are waiting in my studio to be transformed into purses and clutches. The two beautiful prints on the right are from Iman's collection of textiles and the Ikat on the left was hand-woven in India and is just gorgeous in different tones of blue. Also, a shipment of lovely faux suede arrived in chestnut brown, mustard yellow, deep ocean blue, fuchsia, taupe and lemon butter that I can not wait to start working with.


All this activity had Anni quite tired so she decided to spend most of her time napping. Full production in the studio is about to begin so I might have to wake up my little assistant. Usually some thread dangling from a spool does the trick.

I just want to lay down with Anni and pet her. She is a doll.

Sounds like a fun mini-vacation-it is always fun to be a tourist at home. Those new materials are really nice.

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…
