So I made these guys. First off, I never use a pattern (I truly cant understand them). I usually let the yarn take me there. Secondly, Just because I don't have a pattern doesn't mean I don't have a plan. I usually sketch out my ideas and then design around that. I let the shapes of whatever I am making break down. For example, the dinos are simple round bodies with tails, then I add the feet, head and lastly the details. Crazy?

Who else doesn't use patterns? what kind of process do you use?

i love sewing on the floor cause I have no room for it anywhere else  (dont end have a dining room table) and it gives me a reason to kick everyone out of the living room and hog the TV.
I was a bit worried when she asked for a dino dress cause it was so unusual and I wanted to find a pattern that wasnt too baby or boy.

My step daughter wanted a Dino dress fro xmas. We pick up the dark dino fabric at Hobby Lobby (picked up 5 yards, but used only 2 yards). I used the Simplicity pattern 2231 because it has no zippers and she can dress herself. I did adjust the pattern to be longer. Michelle is very lanky and if she bent over you can see princess undies. I added about 5 inches to the end. She loves the dress and now wants pjs to match! please ignore the mess, I do sew on the floor.
Total cost: about $10 for fabric, pattern and elastic

cucumbers are simple in the container, the only problem is that i have to water at least once a day (twice if it is really hot).

I have a patio garden. I am a college student that lives in a typical college apartment. Last year I found that my deck gets decent sun and had a tomato plant that did really well. This year I have a tomato plant again, cucumber plants, broccoli and herbs. Also on my deck I have wildflowers. I found that the containers are better than having them in the ground. If a plant is getting too much sun I can move the container. The sun also works well for my laundry. I have a line that I dry most of my clothes this summer.
Here is a view from my living room onto the main part of my deck:

This picture is looking down my deck towards the narrower part.

This is back towards the main area; you can see my broccoli on the shelf.

This is my main container of herbs (basil, cilantro, and chives)

My lavender and flowers:

My cucumber plant (I have already gotten 12 so far):

Close up of my broccoli:

Close up of my green tomatoes:

My mint (great for my recipes):

This was a little sprig when my mom gave it to me now a large brush of rosemary:

The wildflowers on the side of my porch:

Overall, I believe that I have created a getaway spot for me. I am able to use my deck (no matter how small) to grow many things that I use in my kitchen every day.
