here. I thought a magic wand was the perfect item to represent my word this year.
All of the fabrics are Moda Grunge and the finished quilt measures 18" x 20". I used a bunch of different techniques in this one tiny quilt.... foundation paper piecing for the letters, my own funky dresden technique for the end of the wand, needle turn appliqué recently learned from my friend Martha for the stick, big stitch quilting on the yellow, and machine quilting for the rest.... and I'm really happy with how it all came together.

I have come to learn that often I choose a word for the year for a specific reason and that the reason changes and evolves throughout the year. That said... here is my thinking at this moment.
I believe in myself! I believe that I am strong and capable. I believe I can learn new things, accomplish many things, love well and live well.
I believe our country can (and will) do better. That we have learned much, especially in the past year, and that we will apply what we have learned so that we can work together, love each other and restore our nation to one that is respected throughout the world.
I believe our world will heal. That each of us will have a hand in that healing and that we will, once again, be able to travel the world and be united as a human race.
Most importantly, I believe in an almighty, loving God who will help us to make all of this happen.
Do you have a word for 2021? I'd love to hear about it.
