Laundry List

We've been getting some MUCH needed rain around here for the last couple of days. While I'm taking a break from hanging my laundry outside, I skipped around on the order of my "need to make" list and tackled my clothespin apron. Here it is in all its glory:

Recently, every time I reach in the pocket to take out a clothespin, I manage to tear it just a little bit more. To be fair, this was a relic from my parents' basement (I like to shop there. It's pretty much as good as their attic) and it had a long life before that. I don't want to try to date it, but has been around for DECADES of washing days.

So, today I whipped myself up a new one:


Now we just have to wait for the sun to come back out.

Wish I had a clothesline!

I love it! I have my moms old clothes pin apron also. It's still in pretty good shape due to the fact I have no clothesline :(

I'm glad Aris isn't the only one who is obsessive about buckles. Your little ones are so cute. Hope you have a great weekend.

Soooo cool!! I should make one too. I use the bag thing that hangs on the line as I hang the clothes. Not nearly as handy as an apron I reckon! Nor as cute!

I think of you every time I hang the laundry, thanks to your apron's sister *)

sooo cute! and ummm, novel concept! never occurred to me to make an APRON to hold my clothepins. last year's hanger bag is sun worn again, so thank you for the idea!
