I finally finished the Gemini top which took me forever!  I am glad i did this KAL with a friend.  I failed to meet the deadline though, but its ok!  The pattern was very easy to follow.  I found the neckline part a bit big so I did the single crochet at the end of my knitting.  It came out really nice.  Another beach top that i am happy with.  Go check Ravelry.com and search for Gemini under patterns.  I will knit this again and make it longer.

Summer is almost here.  This top will be fun to wear with shorts or skirt. If you are into making your own wearables this is so easy to make.  Tedious with all the st stitches but doable!  😉

Materials purchased at Michael's craft store

I volunteered to make party favors for my sis-in-law’s baby shower and I had so much fun making them.  So simple and easy and you can embelish it however you want.  First I thought of filling up cute little baby bottles with jelly beans, tie a pink ribbon and be done with it.  But the crafty mom in me wanted to do something guests can keep and be reminded of the the event.  So, went to Michaels craft store and purchased cardboard shaped stars and hearts, magenta acrylic paints, ribbon, and baby charms and assembled them at home.  This is what I came up with.

Its a Girl baby charms

Done! So easy and sweet!
