A friend of mine is expecting a little boy, so there was some sewing and crocheting to be done! What better reason than a baby? This friend worked at my doctor's office the first few years I was there. She is great at starting IV's, changing pic line dressings and took excellent care of me. I know she will be a wonderful mama!
