Working on my next project…

My mom asked if I was going for the world record for quilts made in a year and I realized I’ve made a lot of quilts this year so far. It’s okay though, I enjoy doing it.

IMG_9113I’m currently working on a project made with the fabric I was given for my birthday. I hope to have the top done by this weekend. Then I’ll have to purchase the backing and inners and I’ll be able to finish it. I like it so far.


The hardest part I think of this quilt was the cutting. Sewing is easy especially when you chain sew, but the cutting was a pain in the butt and took forever. Also there has been a lot of math involved with this quilt. Since I’ve written everything out I think I might write this up into a pattern.IMG_9114

I’m also currently building the pattern for the Christmas fabric I received. I have two Christmas quilts I am going to make. One is a kit so not much work has to be done there. The other was just fat quarters given to me so I have to put together a pattern that will use all the fat quarters and not require more.

After that I don’t know what I’ll do mainly because I’m nearly out of fabric. I have some ballet fabric I’d like to use to make Kaylee another quilt but I need first to obtain some more matching fabric for it because it’s not enough to really do anything with.

This is not the layout.

Kaylee also requested I make her a Creeper pillow which I may work on someday.

About Me

Hello! My name is Pamala!

I am a divorced, single mother of two beautiful girls, Kaylee and Annabelle.

I blog to write out my thoughts and opinions on my own life and issues that interest me. I do not write to please anyone and don't censor for the sake of others.

What you read here is me, no lies, no exaggerations. If you don't like it, simply don't read it.


Kaylee is my oldest daughter and she's 10 years old.

Kaylee enjoys drawing, playing, reading, watching movies, and playing with her sister, Annabelle.

Kaylee currently is in 5th grade. She also enjoys reading, writing, computers, Minecraft and plays the Sax and Volleyball.

Kaylee has a disorder called Hyperinsulinism. She takes medication to maintain her blood sugar but other than that she's perfect in every way.


Annabelle is the youngest and most wild of the family! She is 6 years old!

Annabelle loves her sister Kaylee more than anyone in the world. She enjoys running after her sister, playing with toys, and yelling at family!

Annabelle is in 1st grade and kicking butt in school. She plays Softball and Soccer in her free time. She says when she grows up she wants to coach Softball, be a police artist, a chef, and a teacher. She has goals.

Annabelle has Hyperinsulinism but requires no meds to remain within a healthy range (just like Mommy). She just requires us to pay attention to when she's sick or growing to make sure she's fine.
