Happy 2014!



First of all I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. May the year ahead bring you all the best from life!

I was very busy this holiday season with work in the studio and outside the studio. Things are finally getting a little less hectic. I look forward to catching up with my favorite blogs and relaxing on a beach chair. The beach chair might have to wait as it's quite cold here in St. Augustine, Florida right now. Yesterday we had to bring all our outdoor potted plants indoors as temps dipped to below freezing. 


Today I stayed warm indoors and finished up a batch of new bags made with handwoven ikat. They are now available in the shop

Anni also stayed indoors. Even with her fur coat she thought it was a bit too cold for lounging on the balcony. But she still has her favorite grass plant to chew on that is now indoors so she is happy.

It's so great to see Anni! Give her a kiss and hug from both me and Annie. I bet she misses her balcony time right about now during this cold spell that's hitting most of the country.

We also wish you a very happy New Year and hope it brings you many good things!

Annie Bear - Yes she is missing her balcony time. I did open the door for her and she stepped out and pretty much came right back in! But all our plants are now inside because of the cold so she can still chew on them. lol
Yael- I am also wishing you and your family a healthy, happy and wonderful New Year!

Happy New Year, Elisa!!!
Zoe is wishing her friend Anni a great year too!!! :) She is missing her balcony time too in the winter, but she has a lovely sunny spot in the kitchen, where she loves to sleep and relax.

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!
