Drawing Time!


I've been wanting to do a drawing for a while now--I've recently passed a few milestones and want to celebrate!! Sooo--how about if I do a drawing for this pretty drawstring bag?? It's easy to enter--just leave me a COMMENT here in this post AND tell me what is YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBO (just for fun!)--that's it!! I'll stick all your names in a hat next Thursday (March 20th) and let one of my goofy kids draw a name. Be sure to leave me some way to get ahold of you--so if you win I can let you know!

Here is one of my newest creations. I scored a few vintage magazines recently--and one, from 1952, has a big 3 page spread of sewing patterns with these adorable illustrations! I love them! It was hard to take that first cut into the magazine (even though it is in far from collectible shape)--but I had to do it. Listed in my Etsy shop--Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage.

I actually made 2 collages, but one is on it's way to the lovely GeorgiaPeachez (who happens to have several of my collages already)--Thanks Suzy! Go check out her etsy shop--GEORGIAPEACHEZ--she makes the most beautiful bags, many with vintage fabrics--just scrumptious


I also made a new bookcover--just because I felt like it! LOL That floral fabric ended up on the top of one of my teetering stack of fabric--and was calling my name! It just goes so nicely with the gray swirl--I may have to make one of these for myself. Perfect for carrying your paperback books--with handy pockets all around. Available in my SHOP.

The remodelling is coming a long quite nicely--see the freshly stripped woodwork! We have 3 of the 4 walls almost done--it's down to the trim and door painting now. Here's my sweety, paintbrush in hand (see, he's got his paintin' pants on! ) Isn't that a pretty color? Next up *cue scary music * dah dah DUM! the computer wall!! EEEEEK! OMGosh--we have to tear down the computer and reassemble it in the other room so we can strip the piano window and paint the wall --and then tear up the carpetting. Ugh. * It will be so nice when it's done, it will be so nice when it's done, it will be so nice............*


OK--so remember to sign up for the drawing, spread the word, have a fun day--and I expect you all to show up here on Monday to help me move all my computer and other junk over to the other room--'ok?

THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED FOR ENTRIES AND A WINNER HAS BEEN DRAWN!! SEE THE MARCH 20TH POST FOR WINNER!!

Thanks so much for all of you who entered and for all the kind words--I appreciate each and every one of you!! God Bless!

You always have the best color combos! For me right now, it's a toss up between a pale shade of turquoise with either brown or rosey pink as the accent.

I am NOT entering the contest, I would feel like a Mrs. Kwitty bag hog. Which, I am. I think I have 4? 5? Anyhoos, fav color combo, I'm not sure but I really like bright green mixed with dark grey. Very mod.

As much as I love you, I can't come help with the computer move. BUT, I will send well wished and prayers because moving the computer stinks!! STINKS!! I dread it more than heavy stuff.

LOVELY new work! HUGS and SMUSHES!

I don't know how I have missed this blog??? I went through and read a few other posts, and you will be on my must read list now. I came to you by way of Suzy and Beth who are both good friends of mine. Favorite color combo's? Probably chartreuse and turquoise, or is it pink and chocolate, or maybe red and white...I also love yellow and blue. Sorry, I am a total color person. Nice to have met you. Susan

latarnia morska said...

Karen, I LOVE this bookcover, LOL! And my favourite colour combo would be today - blue & brown with some rose pattern! ;-)

Wow! I can see that I'm running late to this party!!! What a wonderful Giveaway! I, of course, have a smaller one of these bags for my wonderful Kwitty coaster collection. It hangs on a curtain rod over my kitchen door window. Very pretty!

Oh, and I was pleasantly surprised by the new Kwitty photo on your profile! Very nice. I must say that just seeing your eyes all of these months had forced me to fill in the blanks... And, I was very wrong with my image! I like this new photo!

I just met a gal after 11 years of knowing her from online. All I could do was stare at her face while she talked! So many things about her were different than I had imagined.

Well, off to church. Have a grand and glorious day!

HUGE HUGS, kj

sbonetsue said...

My favorite color combo seems to change through the seasons but right now I would say violet and green. I love all your products, very inspirational for someone like me. Keep up the great work.

iSew said...

Good luck with all of the remodeling Mrs. Kwitty. The 20th is Nick's birthday! I'll tell him you're doing a drawing in his honor, he won't know the difference, hehe.

My favorite these days is aqua and red, sigh, I love it.

Mary Isabella said...

Beautiful!!! I like lots of colors but love red and golds....

The Rose Cottage said...

Hi Mrs Kwitty, nice to see you again. You know I love all of your work, I always have, and I love your little collage work.
