Hopeful that Thankful is a lucky charm

Hiya!!  I heard from the shop and if the frame isn't bent - my car will be fixed!!  YAY!!  Getting my hopes up too soon maybe.  He hasn't looked at the front wheel to see why it's sideways.  Doesn't sound good to me, but I'm hoping Thankful is a lucky charm.  Tomorrow I will see my regular doc and maybe I can be fixed too.  Gets worse every day! 
 Here's Thankful's progress and one other color change so it's more visible on the dark linen.  I have several errors but as always, the beauty of a reproduction is you can't tell!!  I'm not following the instructions for using one thread vs. two threads in many places.  My head isn't up for much detail so I'm just using 2 threads, but following some of Thankful's missed and half stitches.  So far, she's a joy to work on. 
I will take Mark to work tomorrow and drive his monster to look for the JCS issue that has NFF's Matilda Hornbuckle.  Just love her. 
That's all.  Got all the tag orders completed and in the mail, which took all day, so I need to get a few things done around the house.  I'll grab my ice tea and chew a few more Advil before I get started.
Thanks for visiting!

I so hope your car isn't totaled as mine was three years ago around Labor Day. Messed up my shoulders, arm, chest, neck and assorted other things. Was a real pain in more ways than one. My car was paid for too. I know exactly how you feel.
Hope you get lucky with the car and feel better soon.

Keeping my fingers crossed that your car is fixable and that it will be back on the road soon! I am working on Matilda Hornbuckle right now - she is a treat...looking forward to doing Ghoul Tidings and Happy Halloween from the same issue.

If you cannot find the JCS issue, I will be more than happy to send you mine! I got it to look at it, but will probably not get around to ever stitching anything from it!

Hope your car can be fixed!!

Well Thankful is beautiful, and hopefully she will be that lucky charm. Fingers crossed your car can be fixed. I hope the doctor helps you get fixed too. You poor thing.

Thankful is looking good! I used to be a nut when it came to every stitch had to be correct but I soon figured it out that I'm usually the only one who notices anyway. That's what makes it MINE!
I hope your car is fixable and please take care of yourself too.
