This is the reason I haven't posted for the last few months. I sprained a thumb ligament. I was pulling a bolt of fabric out and twisted my hand, pulling the thumb backwards. I was in a cast for 10 weeks, and now into week 4 of 6 weeks physio. Until the last couple of weeks holding a needle was just too painful, so no needlework or sewing - sigh! Thankfully it is all healing well now and I am able to do a bit of needlework and sewing, though I need to be careful not to overdo it.
I only needed around another 6 hours to finish this piece of Jacobean embroidery. I finally got this done last week. This is Just Jacobean from the book Crewel Twists by Hazel Blomkamp.

I realised I've done a fair amount of dressmaking since I started around 9 months ago, but haven't posted very much. Here is a catch up.
