Pick Me Up!

Sometimes you just need a pick me up. Anne’s kidney tests had me in a funk yesterday, and really Tuesday and Wednesday too (hence no blog post yesterday). Sometimes I just wish getting answers was easier, but alas, it is not. We are now anxiously awaiting her test results.

Anyways, I decided yesterday that I needed a pick me up.  Meet my pick me up!

Using some lovely Cuzco by Kate Spain that my amazing friend Lyanna from Purple Panda Quilts sent me for Christmas, I made the Noodlehead Gathered Clutch.  Now I would love to say that it went together perfectly but it didn’t, mostly my fault, she says that one of the pictures is wrong and explains how to do it right, but I followed the picture (visual learner here). Once I ripped out my minor mistake, it was easily fixed. Like Anna, I spent more time picking out my fabrics than actually sewing the clutch! It went together sew quickly!

Here’s a pic of the inside:

Ignore my untrimmed threads! LOL!

Do you sew when you need a pick me up? Does it help you get out of your funk? It totally helped me!

Have a great weekend! I will be back on Monday with the mid-month check in for A Lovely Year of Finishes.

    Sewing is definitely a pick me up when I’m down. It usually works best to try a new project and not something I’ve been working on. Something quick and easy like your clutch. Hope the tests come back with good answers and quickly.

    Sewing is absolutely my funk getter outer activity of choice 🙂 The clutch turned out wonderful. Crossing my fingers for answers sooner than later!

    Love the clutch! What a wonderful little pick me up! I do sew … especially when I am feeling very out of control of things going on around me! Praying these tests finally bring answers!

    Yes, I always feel better after I have created something. (unless that creation is a frustrating failure) Sorry you needed a pick-me-up, but the results are super cute!

    Lovely make! and I trust Anne will be fine with her kidneys, thinking of you!

    Very pretty clutch. I love the fabrics you used. Praying that Anne’s tests come back good. When I’m in a funk I tend to read inspiration novels a lot. Escaping I suppose.
    Hang in there.

    I definitely do – like all day today, for instance. =) I love those fabrics. It’s the cutest little clutch ever. I pray Anne’s results are in soon, and are wonderful.

  11. Love the gathered clutch pattern and yours turned out so cute! Love those fabrics. I hope that all the tests come back with good news. I totally understand needing sewing as a pick me up, Wednesday was such a bad day and I felt out of control so to feel better I completed one almost finished top and totally pieced another.

    Prayers on the way for Anne and all of you. I am glad you share your worries with us, we can walk with you and support you. The Lord will give you the grace to persevere through the excruciating wait. Youth is on Anne’s side! Love to all, Anne M

    It’s so hard to wait for things like that. I’m glad something pretty and useful came out of it 🙂
