Vintage sewing book

This is the book that I have been making. And the book that the sewing tag was made for.  Above is the cover of the book.
Pages 1 & 2. The doily is one that my mum gave me & the studs are some that my friend Isabell gave me. Page 2 has an embroidery that I did for module one of my city & guilds home work.
Pages 3&4. The little book in the centre of page 4 is  a book that is filled with pictures of every size needle there is. So now if I have needles in a pin cushion & I am not sure of the size. I can just pull out this book & place the needle on the pages & see which one it is.

There are still many pages to be filled in. And I will have fun collecting all the bits & bobs for them.
