Stepping on cracks

The other day I was running some errands with my 10 year old and he kept saying "Sorry Mom" over and over and over again. However when I looked at him I couldn't see that he was doing anything wrong. So I asked him why he was saying sorry to me and he replied "'Cuz I stepped on cracks and that means your back is going to break" (Step on a crack and you break your Mother's back). Nice! So I grinned and told him he was silly.

Well the last few days I've had a kink in my back and I think it's all his fault.  :o)
Ok, it's not his fault. But this is the worst timing in the world to be less tham mobile. Last night was the worst. I woke in the middle of the night like someone had stabbed me in my back. I couldn't get comfortable. Standing is fine- but sitting is excruciating. Problem is I have sewing to do and I can't do that standing up. Oh yeah, and I'm at the computer sitting again. I just have too much to do than to be in pain. So I'm doing the best with what I've got and hoping I can get my growing list of projects done.

Today is Vanessa's day on the blog tour. Um, LOVE her. No really, I do. Her post will be up soon (after she gets her kids off to school) but I just had to post about her in return.

Have you seen her new fabric collection!?

I am so excited for this girl! This collection is at the top of my list to fight my way through the crowds for at Sample Spree next week during market. I LOVE it!

My favorite part and quilt possibly what everyone's buzzing about:

The ombre solids! I am SO excited about these and already have the perfect pattern in mind. They are so delicious and fun. YUM! Don't you just LOVE them!?

*sigh* :o)

Alrightie folks, that's about all I can stand sit for now. Talk to you soon.

Oh my gosh, that is just too funny! (not about your back of course) I had no idea kids learned that anymore. Gosh, maybe I need to check in with my kids and ask them if they've been dancing on the cracks lately. I've had horrible pain in my lower back and off to the left a bit for weeks now. I don't know what kind of office chair you have but there is one thing that has helped me a little ~ sure doesn't take that pain away but it's helped. If your chair has the seat tilt up and down, tilt the front of the seat down (or maybe up works for you) just a tiny bit. That makes the pressure hit a different area on your backend and changes the amount on your back as well. I'll cross my fingers your chair does have the tilt and it will help. (I also know it's possible you've already overcome that pain as I am way WAY behind in my emails too and if it's already gone then that's even better)

OH and I have been DROOLING over Vanessa's fabrics since her first sneak peek at them. I just ADORE all of them and am hoping I'll be able to get my hands on some before those sell out. I'm sure they're going to go very quickly.

Hope it was wonderful. The color line is awesome - what exactly is an ombre solid? They are all beautiful.
