What comes to mind when you hear that word?? Last night’s dinner becoming tonight’s?? “Planned-overs”?? Good thoughts?? “Ugh” thoughts??? Well, sometimes  these are definitely a ‘good thing’! Way back in July (oops…..that’s just a few days ago!), when ‘Christmas in July’ was bombarding us with sales, specials and thoughts of that future holiday, Wendy, over at Ivory Spring, posted this beautiful jewel of a tablerunner………    It can be found in the Autumn 2013 issue of “Quilter’s World”. You can read the entire post here. I left my comment/shameless awe(!) and wished I had purchased the fabrics shown when I had seen them recently at a LQS (local quilt shop). Well…..yesterday, a little something arrived in my mail box———013  Yup, these little lovelies are the “leftovers” from Wendy’s awesome table quilt!!! Thank you, Wendy!!! I have said it before but will repeat, I am not one to do the “Christmas in July”-type projects (I don’t have the publishing deadlines that some do nor the motivation to even contemplate the season that begins with the letter “W”!!! ) so this wonderful surprise will have to percolate in my brain for a while…….but that is what makes up my dreams much of the time! Do you dream in color?? I do and these colors are found in my current living room décor……just, maybe, the project won’t have a seasonal theme after all!!! Stay tuned…..and have a wonderful, upcoming, weekend! Hugs…..

    I definitely dream in color. Love those colors and I can’t wait to see what you create with it. Happy Day to you!

  2. I can see how this fabric could easily be worked into your decor and not used as a holiday piece. How lovely that you got these left-overs. Will be excited to see what your creative mind creates.
