A Different Kind of Finish

I have another finish for 2011. It is not a quilt. I will claim it as a finish none the less.

While surfing blogs, I came across Grograin and was inspired by her month of embellished knits. I decided to "re-create" a sweater for The Baby.

So, about a month ago I went to our local Goodwill store and found a few sweaters I thought I could work with. I liked the look of this one and thought it had possibilities. It is a Tommy Hilfiger and I like the clean lines on it. Note the cigarette burn at the bottom. Sorry the photo is sideways - I don't know how to turn it around.

I used some lace and a couple of light weight fabrics for the ruffles.

Here is what I ended up with. I am hoping The Baby will like it.

I know this is not a great photo. The Baby is due home this weekend and I will have her pose with it on. I am sure it will look much better. I will try to get a close up of the ruffles.

On to more pressing matters....Thanksgiving Dinner in a Dish.

Make stuffing (I use two boxes of Stove Top) and put it in a baking dish. Press it against the sides.

Put left over turkey or chicken in the dish.

Layer corn on top. I used frozen, but you could use canned.

Pour a jar of turkey gravy on top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until hot all the way through.

Mind you, I don't normally cook this way. This is an easy dinner to make when you are tired, but want more that potato chips and dip for dinner. Hope you enjoy.

Hope you are having a great weekend. I plan on basting "Krys'" scrappy quilt and getting some of the quilting done.

Pin It Now!

Wow the cardigan/sweater looks great, what a fabulous transformation. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of The Baby trying it on.
Thanks for showing how you make Thanksgiving dinner in a dish, I'm not sure whether I would eat it. but it does look interesting. We can't get Stove Top stuffing here.

Cute as @ the cardy.

I wish I'd had the pictures last week when I made Cynthia Pie without the benefit of visuals. Mine doesnt look like yours at all..I probably did it all wrong! I'll send you pictures when I defrost mine- you'll laugh your arse off!
