Masonic "Trust in God" needlework picture. Wool thread stitched on brown perforated paper. Primarily satin stitch in yellow, blue, red, green and cream. Across the top is a sun, all-seeing eye and moon with stars. At each side is a column, one with a terrestrial globe and one with a celestial globe. One has a level on the base, the other has a plumb on the base. In the center is "Trust / in / God." Bewteen the words is an open Bible with square and compasses, three steps and a mosaic pavement in blue and white. The design was printed onto the perforated paper as a stitching pattern - some sections can be seen.
