Floor pillow I made with some fabric I fell in love with a while back. I used fiberfill for this... it is very fluffy but if you weigh more than 50lb you feel like you are sitting on the floor. I will have to redo it using foam or some other filler. The kids love it though.
This is the stack of fabric waiting for me... and I have a few more things stashed away or old clothe waiting to be cut and reused. But I have to say lots of fabric but little $$. Joann's had some fat quarter for 99 cents each and well I use two for a skirt! I found tons and tons of linen I bought 10 years ago... Along with some so so fabric I bought for making a quilt seriously what was I thinking maybe I can use that to make baby boy pants.... We shall see

Here is the recipe:
- 1 pork tenderloin open in the middle (not cut through but more like butterflied)
- mushroom (white, or portobello or crimini)
- blue cheese
- bunch of oregano
- bunch of sage
- bunch of thyme
- bunch of rosemary
- 1 glass of white wine
- garlic choped.
Cut the tenderloin in the middle to open it NOT to cut it in half. Dice the mushrooms, then mix them with some blue cheese (you don't need much), the herb all chopped and the garlic. Put the herb mixture on top of he pork, add a bit of olive oil and a glass of wine and cook it in the oven until done (about 45min at 390)...
Serve with some roasted potatoes like the little one above cooked as such
Quarter the fingerling potatoes skin on, put in an ovenproof dish, sprinkle with coarse salt or normal salt and some olive oil and cook in the oven until crispy.
Enjoy with a glass of white wine or red.

When I had to go to Joann's the next day to buy appropriate sewing needles, I stumbled upon fat quarters at 99cents each... Hmmm my little girl is so bitty that two and half fat quarters are enough to make a top or a skirt, add two cute button and an elastic waist and voila.... for 4$ and 1hours work!
