Well, I found my machine and got to back to stitching. I worked all week. I finished two pieces and made two more new little ones.
These are little ones done entirely by machine, and done entirely from the heart. I didn't have images sitting before me as inspiration. That's new!
Friday afternoon I brought them by to find out more had sold during the week. I'm totally in shock! I set up the four new threadpaintings and went next door to the wonderful & unconventional flower shop. From 2 to 5:30 every Friday, they have 'happy hour'. I did not know that. All those incredible and unique flowers were half price. So I stocked up and went back to Handmade House to set them up on the counter. (They look amazing by the way!!) It was at that moment that yet another threadpainting was purchased. Spring Storm (below) sat on the display shelf for not even ten minutes.

Incidentally, all the new handstitching is still there. None of those have been taken home but they are being enjoyed I hope. Even still, I left there so giddy. I can't describe the feeling. I'm so grateful. Things haven't moved this fast in a while. Obviously I'll have to keep making up more pieces. Definitely I will be going back on Fridays for more flowers. I had the BEST afternoon ever! 'Happy Hour' indeed!
