New Product Range .... and a Giveaway!

Hello and a huge welcome to any newcomers and a big thank you to all my blogger friends who have come with me from my old pottery blog.  I really want to make you all a nice cup of tea and a slice of lemon cake but I can't work out how to do that via a blog - yet!


What I do plan to do via this blog,  (yes - there is an actual plan!), is to mix up all that's happening in the handmade ceramics studio with the latest updates on my new range of quilty things for the home, and add in a pinch of anything else interesting, crafty and creative.


Starting with traditional quilt block patterns;  for me, the appeal of these age old designs is in their geometrical energy, their colour and vitality and all the history and culture associated with them.  Oh yes, and  I love their quirky individual names.  I first started researching quilt-blocks years ago for my handmade ceramics, and I'm still finding it fascinating and informative.


So now, having already jumped off quilts and onto my pots, these lovely patterns have escaped even further - onto a new range of kitchen items and gifts.  And best of all, only genuine vintage fabric prints have been used in each design.


You can see the complete collection in my new online shop   www.cathydaniel.co.uk


But now for the important bit ......
  INTRODUCTORY GIVEAWAY!!
The lucky winner can choose any single item from the new product range at Cathy Daniel Homewares absolutely free.  All you need to do is follow this blog any way you choose, leave me a comment, and mention the Giveaway on your own blog/facebook/twitter/other - if you have one.  The Giveaway is open to overseas and UK and the winner will be picked by random number generator and announced here on 22nd March 2014 when they will be asked for their choice of item.  You can take the Giveaway picture below and link back to me, if you're able!


Good Luck!  Thanks for popping in and keep in touch!

x Cathy

They are adorable. I'm going to be asking for a quilty bowl for a present. My paternal grandfather was from England and came to the States when he was 17. So, I feel a very personal connection to the UK. My mother and her paternal grandmother were each quilters. Thank you for a great giveaway. May God Bless you every day!
