Marilyn's Book

I decided that on my latest trip home to England, I'd make my cousin Marilyn a book.  She crafts as well as sews.  She is a seamstress extraordinaire.  I showed it first to her mother, and her reaction was what I had hoped, and knew that her daughter would have a similar reaction. Below is the book.
