Fonts and photos

must apologise for the lack of recent blog posts - have been busy scanning & trying to work out Photoshop basics, to the point where my head is rather a muddle of layers and fonts, photos and images.  I have an amazing Girl's Own Annual from 1899 and am busy scouring through the thousands of pages in my search for interesting graphics I can use. 
Also I am finishing off some vintage embroideries I had found in a partly worked state - I have a nice shoebox full of vintage embroidery threads, most of which belonged to my Grandmother, so the colours are matching in well.  I have been scanning lots of textile scraps & vintage embroidered items to try & incorporate with text and very pleased with the results.  In the meantime, a photo of my favourite brooch ever, bought on ebay, which sums me up!  Hope you are all well. x
