All Thy Works

My version of the ever-popular Adam and Eve sampler has a different twist. I've chosen to emphasize the creation of which Adam and Eve are a part, rather than the "fall". The serpent is still tucked into the tree, but the rest of the design celebrates the abundance of our world. The title comes from a phrase in the first verse of a favorite hymn, How Great Thou Art.
