From Paulette: I wrote the verse for this sampler based on Psalm 50:10-11. I found these particular Scripture verses to be so beautiful, and I immediately imagined all sorts of creatures, all belonging to God. In this stitching season of all things black-and-orange, I hope this color palette will be soft alternative to all the beautiful, vibrant autumn offerings out there!
