Another Quilt Finished

I finished up Kaylee’s Jelly Roll Race Quilt today. I was thinking of writing up a tutorial on it but honestly, you can probably find one by Googling it anyhow. Yesterday I was looking through my mother’s fabric stash and she has so many cool fabrics I want to make things out of. But I can’t. I have so many idea but not enough fabric. She has a whole closet…

Annabelle’s Quilt Finished

This weekend I pinned, quilted and put the binding on Annabelle’s quilt. Pinning was especially hard since I have a hurt knee and I pin by laying the quilt out on the ground and then pinning it. So try doing that without putting any weight on your knee. Not easy. For the quilting I just did a wavy line across it. I don’t get fancy with my quilting. I have…

Jelly Roll Race Quilt

So after I came home from vacation last week I decided to take on a Jelly Roll Race quilt. I had read it could take up to an hour to do or even several depending on your skill level. Luckily for me it only took about an hour and a half. While camping Annabelle had visited a local quilt shop and chosen a Jelly Roll, LOL by Me and My…

Thinking it’s time for a change?

Perhaps the focus of this blog should shift, maybe over to my hobbies more so than solely about the kids? So I think in the future I’m going to highlight my quilting mainly. Blog about the projects I’m working on and the progress I’m making. I’ll probably still blog about other stuff too. Maybe.

How much time…

So it’s been suggested that perhaps it’s been enough time since my divorce (four years to be exact) and that I should start actively seeking out someone new. We’ll just ignore the logistics around finding someone in general and how that’s damn near impossible at the moment, but it seems to be highly unlikely too. Lets say that average beginning dating is age 13. I went from age 13 to…

Annabelle is sick…

And not just your standard cold or flu but rather pneumonia and I can’t help but be a bit angry about it. In the first week of March she started running a fever so I took her into Urgent care to be seen. The doctor said it was a double ear infection. She was put on antibiotics and did improve until about day 9 of the antibiotics when her fever…

Cinderella

Tonight we saw Cinderella and I have to say I think it was pretty good. I enjoyed the young woman that played Cinderella. I don’t know her name but she was good. I particularly like one part of the movie when the King and Prince were talking and frankly it was just a beautiful ending to the scene the way they shot it. The movie though held true to the…

I’ve been thinking…

So I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do for my next quilt since I finished my other one. I had intended to make this: Main problem with this one is the pinwheels don’t look all that great. But I guess in the end it doesn’t matter. I’ve been slowly making the half square triangles for the pinwheels. I may though try to do some sort of chevron pattern…

On a quilting roll…

In the first three months of the year I’ve completed two quilts, one wall hanging and one quilt top. I’ve also started on another quilt that I should finish the top for pretty soon as well (maybe this weekend if I sit down and do it). I’ve been on a quilting roll. It’s good though because I’ve been having severe anxiety to the point where it started to effect my…

Sherlock

So I had surgery on the 16th and it went well. I did though have to spend some time in bed resting and what not. So while laying around doing nothing I had to decide on what to watch on TV and finally said to myself that I might as well watch Sherlock since it was there. It’s a damn good show. Managed to watch all three series in one…

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

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

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.
