A is for Apron


... and Autumn. I love to hang my clothes outside in the sunshine, and have been doing it for years.

Several years back, I bought myself a laundry apron with huge pockets for carrying clothespins. It's so much more convenient than running back and forth to a bag of pins hanging on the line. This morning I made Autumn her own laundry apron with big pockets. She was thrilled when I gave it to her this afternoon.

A is for apron, Autumn, and Abigail. She's next in line so she quits stealing mine!

Oh, I love this apron. What a wonderful idea, this is so much better than a clothespin bag.

Autumn is looking well these days!

I also use an apron for my clothes pins! It is so much nicer than those bags!

Although, it is kinda funny when my husband brings in the laundry for me...hehehe!

That is THAT greatest idea. Just last night, as I hung our sofa slip covers on my line, I was doing the laundry line run. I never thought of an apron. Did you just use a regular pattern and increase the pocket sizes or is there actually a pattern for a laundry apron?

What a cute idea. I think that is so much better than walking back and forth to get clothespins.

I wish I had a clothesline! I use drying racks inside our house and they do just fine. I do miss the look and sound of clothes flapping in the breeze!

The apron is a great idea! Very cute!

SO cute! I love reading about your family and ways. Makes me want a laundry line too! We are moving in about a month and will have a much bigger yard. I'm sure I'll be able to find the perfect spot for my own laundry line!! Thanks for making mothering and being a wife so fun and sharing it with the rest of us! LOVE the pink laundry basket!

What a great apron! and a beautiful new bride!

We have an old clothesline in the backyard, but I'm ashamed to say that I've never used it. I just might start!
