Why I started my blog ....Gill told me about hers, and I thought it was a good idea! Found it very strange at first, but I'm addicted now..
How I came up with the name of my blog ....My daughter loves pink, and we call her cupcake sometimes. Plus I love cake...
Do my friends and family know about my blog? What do they think of it? My blog is on my Facebook account, so I would imagine my friends know about it, and that means my family do too. R knows I blog, but can't get his head round it at all!
How do I write my posts ...If I think of something, I write about it. Sometimes I'm formulating blogs in my head when I'm cooking, listening to my iPod (whilst cooking), or sewing and listening to my iPod!! Lately though I've been up to my eyes with builders and cups of tea and because I haven't had a chance to do any sewing, I am not inspired as much! Mind you, I have cut out a gorgeous nightdress for C!
Ever had a troll or had to delete unkind comments ...Had a troll who posted something this morning (which is why I am now moderating my comments). No unkind posts yet...why would someone do that!
Do I check my stats? No? How do I do that?!
Do I care who/how many read my blog? Yes!
Do I try to increase traffic? No idea how to do that!
What I like and dislike about blogging...I like reading about other peoples blogs...and looking at photographs, and getting inspiration! I hate uploading the photographs and sometimes get carried away looking at too many blogs while my ironing multiplies..
I was tagged by Gill and I'm going to tag...erm let me think....Shabby Shac !

The dark brown one with the dots reminds me of chocolate cupcakes with lots of sprinkles over them, and the other ones just coordinate so well!
I actually have a fat quarter of the paisley pink, and didn't even realise it was Amy Butler. Best keep that to myself and not tell R :-)
I have also been asked to make two bridesmaids dresses in pale pink silk with hot pink sashes. One is for C, and the other is for another little girl, E. My sister-in-law is getting married in September and I will be making a toile out of calico at some point, which I will show you. It's all very exciting. I am doing the flowers as well so I may as well just stop sleeping now!
