The title of this exciting and vibrant needlework picture comes from a psalm written by Isaac Watts (1674-1748), whose works inspired many verses stitched on samplers and needlework pictures during and long after his death. In 1702 he was appointed pastor of Mark Lane Chapel, an important Congregational church in London, but poor health caused him to retire soon thereafter although he continued to participate in his church’s activities. He wrote prodigiously throughout his life composing more than 750 hymns. Here is the full text of the title verse- Psalm 133- on “Love and worship in a family”.

Stitches used to execute this needlework picture are cross (over one and two threads of linen), counted satin, back, double running, and turkey work (a looped and cut technique as used for rug hooking, only on a much finer scale). On 35 count linen the finished piece will measure approximately 14″ x 17-1/2″. The project is recommended for intermediate to advanced needle workers. The graph has been printed in full color.
