The 'needle books' are every bit as good as the trade cards, rubber boxes (jar seals), or matchbooks when it comes to art. This is a nice one.

Were any of the needles rusty? :)

They all were, Amy. You can see it in the last photo.

Maybe those were replacement needles, inserted in the handy-dandy needle book once the original ones had gone astray...
