Blog Re-shuffle !!

Sadly, (sob, sob), this is going to be my final posting from this blog ...  but happily, I am going to continue from a shiny new blog!  And the reason for all this change?

Well, some of you may recall my tale of woe from last year when I was thrown on the scrap-heap made redundant from my part-time 'proper job'?  Thing is, my little pottery, popular as it is, is not enough to keep the wolf from the door and my kids in everlasting education! 
So I put my thinking cap on and came up with a plan, of sorts.

You all know how I've been taking these wonderful quiltblock patterns from their natural habitat to put them onto my handmade pottery.  Well, why stop there, I thought.  Why not extend these designs onto a few other bits and bobs?

Maybe just a small collection of kitchen textiles, china mugs and coasters, across four different designs? So I gave it a shot, and I'm thrilled to bits with how brilliantly these new products have turned out.

Only, this blog isn't ideal for showing this new stuff, so I've done a new blog that will include BOTH my handmade ceramics AND these new items, and other things crafty, creative and quilty.

I have absolutely loved doing my PotterJotter blog and I don't want to lose contact with you brilliant, supportive, creative friends out there, so I really hope that you will come over to the new blog with me.  I refuse to say 'follow me' as I hate that.  I have never felt you are all following me, any more than I am following you.  It always feels to me more like we just drop in for a chat now and again like mates do.

Oh yes .... the important bit:  my new blog is called PATCHY DETAILS.  And you may just find an introductory Giveaway there!

See you soon, I hope!

Bye for now.  x Cathy
