Painful Sewing

To all my sewing blogger out there what type of chair are you sewing in?Well I have been sewing in that chair picture above for 2 years.I remember when I saw that chair and table set at walmart and had to purchase it.Now I am having leg problems and back troubles.My right leg is numb from the knee down.It has been like that the whole month of December.Now pain is starting to come in my leg.My doctor gave some pills to get the inflammation down. When it goes down I will have to get some X-rays to see what is going on.I have been sewing off and on ,but I used my adjustable computer chair to sew in.My doctor told me not to do any sewing for a while, but I am hard headed.To my blogging friends make sure you have the right chair to sew in so you won't have pain later!!!

These are some of the things I shouldn't of have been sewing!SHH don't tell.And yes I was in pain after making each and everything!See I told you I was hard headed!
