Why, yes I have! I have done Labor and delivery nursing, so I have had the Honor of helping to bring several little souls into this world. It was a privilege.

Yes, I had the honor of helping my DGD (now 15) make her beautiful entrance into this world.

Nope, only some adorable puppies. Made me think birth was easy and painless.

Lots of kittens, but no humans. I was supposed to help with a dear friend's home birth, but that sweet child decided to be born two weeks early, and I was on vacation! I have never quite forgiven her and still occasionally remind her of it!

Other than giving birth myself, no, I haven't had that pleasure.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

Puppies, kittens and my son.  Other than those, I've not had the pleasure.

Does keeping chicken eggs warm count?

Yes, I had a friend who chose artifical insemenation and was single.  We were in training at the Foreign Service Institue and I was her lamaze coach and helped her through delivery.  Quite an incredible experience to be on the other side.  Her son is now 30.  I am also his godmother.

Yes, I have right up to the delivery room with DGS and into the the delivery room with the 3 DGDs. had the honor of being the first one to hold first DGD and the second to hold the other two DGDs. Daddy being the first. Not counting the staff of course. It's a beautiful and touching thing to watch the next generation come into the world.

No excuse needed for staying indoors to sew.

No biting flies and mosquitoes.

Where I live the Summer is constant sun every day. The winter is cooler and luckily our rainy season, and boy are we getting wonderful rain! Love the cooler temps, and the gloomy skies. Perfect for staying in and sewing. Our drought is almost over!

Hmmmm, since we're in the middle of a snowpocalypse this year, it's hard to think quickly of a positive. But since I hate to sweat, I'd have to say I love that it's not too hot and the danger of wildfires is nil.

Life is short...buy the fabric.

I love how clean and fresh the snow is, how wonderful it smells...watching it from my sewing room windows is wonderful!!  It puts a nice glow in the room.  Reminds me that I don't have to go anywhere, I can stay home and sew!!
