I did something a bit different with this hoop. I have stitched countless landscapes but never have I stitched one inspired by a scripture. This hoop I was inspired by Romans 15:13 and the over all message of hope in that scripture.
I used the scripture to speak to me in the colors I chose, the design, the over all feeling of the landscape. The vibrant sky spoke hope to me. The flowers, joy, and the green grass, the peace in the scripture. It came together so naturally. It felt amazing to make something that felt God-breathed.
