  I had already decided to "make" my word for the year before I saw so many others doing it too.  Simple fusing of hand drawn letters, machine appliqued, scraps added for a border...done.

I wanted to pin my word  up on the design wall so it could confront me everyday as a simple reminder to enjoy it all.

The project
The design process
The cutting and sewing
The borders and binding
The quilting...of course!

Each day, no matter what it brings.
Each sunny day, and each raindrop.
Each hug and tear, each meal to cook, and bed to make.
To relish and find the good in everything in this wonderful time of life.

  Then I saw a linky party for this year's words at Elm Street Quilts.   So why not make a mini for your word and join in?   Did I mention there are giveaways too.....hint, hint.
Enjoy....happy stitching.

A cute reminder for your word. Clever way to keep it on your mind.

Your word "ENJOY" looks good in batiks. I like how your word is very similar to my word, "EMBRACE". I shall embrace every day to the fullest. 2016 will be an amazing year dear...

That's a good word! Your mini is beautiful, it makes me want to make a bunch and hang them all over :)

Great word choice - I made a small banner with my word two years ago (Wabi-Sabi) still not fastened on my wall, but I shall make another one for my word for 2016.

Enjoy is a great work! I think we should find a way to make that part of our everyday! Thanks for linking up at Elm Street Quilts Word 16 and helping to spread the word.

Debbie, your word and quilt make me smile! God gives us so many blessings to be thankful for, so why not enjoy them? What a nice reminder to do this daily. Enjoy!
