What can a stitcher do when they cannot stitch

Well unfortunately the shoulder is still broken according to the latest x-ray but slowly healing. So what to do, as 2 handed stitching is out of the question ?

I am able to show you more progress on Rainforest  which was finished earlier and may be an option for stitching one handed in a floor frame.

There is one more row to complete this piece and it was so much fun to stitch  I decided to do some retail therapy to enhance the stash.

'Rainforest Revisited' is the companion piece to the first, a little larger in size and an interesting combination of stitches.
The second is 'In my wildest dreams' and as the designer, the very talented Carolyn Mitchell advises is to use up all your odds and ends of threads left over from other projects. This could also be worked using overdyed and variegated threads in a range of  perhaps 2 complementary colours.

Here are 2 others I found by Laura Perin, which would look beautiful stitched in any colours. Itching to get started on all of these. Hope they inspire you too.

Well I am off to choose some threads for these great charts so that I'll be ready to start stitching as soon as possible.

Bye for now
