Harris Tweed Tote Bags


New in the shop! These tote bags are made from exclusive Harris Tweed wool imported from the Isle of Harris, Scotland. Harris Tweed is a luxury cloth handwoven by the islanders in their homes on the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. 


This bag is certified with an authentic Harris Tweed label.





A glimpse into the studio earlier today.


This year I was not able to place an order for new Harris Tweed wool. I missed perusing all my samples and making my selections. Luckily I still have several meters of various solids and check weaves in stock for my fall collection so stay tuned!

Update 8/28/13 : I was able to purchase a few meters of single width Harris Tweed! I'll have a little more to work with in the studio very soon.

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.

Time

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!
