    I need to make a clothes pin holder, I just leave mine on the line.
    We also ironed sheets, pillow cases, and my dad's boxer shorts lol!!!!!
    When I was growing up, my Mom had us iron sheets and pillowcases, Daddy's handerchiefs and his boxer shorts. By the way, there is a right and wrong way to iron them. [giggles]

    My grandma had a clothespin bag like that. She left it hang on the clothesline, that way she always knew where it was. I don't have a clothesline,darn. I love the fresh smell of sheets dried outside.

    Making one of those is on my 'to do' list. A few weeks ago there was a thread about these with several links to patterns. I thought I bookmarked it, but can't find it. I hang out all my clothes, sheets, towels, etc. My kids complain about scratchy towels when they are home. I just tell them they are spoiled and I like scratchy. They are more absorbent.

    My grandma always had a cute clothes pin bag - she hung laundry outside except when the weather was bad. I was thinking of making one of those clothespin bags.
