Baby poo, the art of letting go and a present for you!

Hey hey.

So very glad to see you here!

Its been a very interesting few months here at Cake HQ.  I have been thinking and thinking about a whole bunch of things and making some decisions about the future of this blog and me, and all the other stuff in between.

Which leads me to baby poo.  When my daughter was very little, it came time to face toilet training.  She was going to start Preschool for one day a week and she had to be fully toilet trained before she started.

It was disaster.  An absolute disaster.  No matter what we did, now matter how hard we both tried, it was terrible.

The crunch came on the day that we. both sat in the bathroom for hours and my husband came home from work to find us both sitting on the floor crying.  It was awful.  I picked up my little girl, kissed her wet little face while we both sobbed and I told her we were not going to worry about toilets and poos anymore.  So we didn't.  Three days later she came into our bedroom very early in the morning to tell Captain SWP that she had done an enormous poo in the toilet and it looked like a sausage.

We stopped worrying and stressing and fighting.  We relaxed, took a breath and stopped worrying.  Then everything fell into place.

This was a very important lesson for me.  And it seems that I had forgotten this important lesson when it comes to my blog.  I have been lost in the web.  I haven't really known how I am suppose to approach it, it's so big and nebulous.  I feel like I have thousands of people yelling at me with courses and things I "should" be doing and on and on it goes.

So I have decided to let it all go, take a big breath and relax.  What this will mean is that Cake HQ will be just that.  My HQ.  Im going to post about what I want, things that I find interesting, things that catch my fancy, I'm going to give patterns away because I love to design, I'm going to make stuff and share stuff I learn. Maybe also try and get together some professional stuff too, talk about the design process and whatever takes my fancy will be here.  I might have posts about selling some patterns but they are going to be few and far between.  I am also thinking about getting together a group to come with me to The Tokyo International Quilt Festival in January 2021.

There's going to be lots of stuff, and I have no idea exactly what it's going to all look like.  We will find out together.

I am going to be including Japanese and French here as well, Japanese Quilters are prolific and incredibly passionate and no one includes them. So are French quilters so  I am going to do that.

I am using an online translator here and I do apologise, but as I learn and if I can find any native speakers I will see if I can get some help.

There will be another post after this one with my gift to you, a pattern with templates.  all yours.  Go. Nuts.




J'ai pensé à beaucoup de choses
Je devais enseigner à ma petite fille comment utiliser les toilettes avant qu'elle est allée à l'école pre.
C'était un désastre, c'était terrible. nous avons crié.
Nous avons arrêté d'inquiéter et souligner et lutter. Nous nous sommes détendus, avons respiré et avons arrêté de nous inquiéter. Alors tout est tombé dans l'endroit.
c'était une leçon très importante et un j'ai oublié. J'ai constaté qu'Internet est très grand, avec les règles qui ne sont pas claires.
Je vais parler de toutes les sortes de choses, j'espère que vous l'aimez.
J'utilise un traducteur en ligne ici et je m'excuse vraiment, mais comme j'apprends et si je peux trouver des locuteurs natifs je verrai si je peux recevoir un peu d'aide.
