The photo is of my grandmother who was a tailoress, so I have used some of her bits that I have had for nearly 40 years. The ivory button is monogrammed with the initial of her maiden name. The black bead is made of Jet, the silver thimble had been so well used by her that there were a few holes in the top allowing me to be able to sew it onto my tag. The vintage darning wool, was given to me by a very old friend, remaining odds and ends came from my stash.
