Anybody up for a Solar Dryer:)
I do not have a clothesline up yet at our new place,
but it is on my list.
Maybe this winter when the snow flies and Steve needs a "honey-do" job.
He can fire up his welder and make me some poles.
I found this little "0 to 3 months" bib overalls at the Goodwill for $1.98
They were too cute to pass up.
So I sewed the legs shut and added cotton lace.
Then I whip stitched the snap crouch
so it wouldn't open and spill all my clothes pins out.
Then I drew a hanger pattern
and went out to Steve's shop
and cut a half inch piece of plywood scrap.
I painted it first with gesso,
to help smooth the plywood.
And then again with exterior house paint.
After all it will be hanging outside a lot of the time.
Well, here it is hanging in the laundry room.
I really think that it turned out cute
and it holds 100 wooden pins.
I distressed the hanger and used rubber stamps to decorate it.
Here are the cotton lace legs. . .
and the back . . .
the clothes pins give it a little bit of a rounded bottom:)
After I finished sewing I went to the mailbox and this lovely
card from my daughter was waiting for me.
Don't you just love going to the mail box and finding something from a loved one.
It's the very best!
Much better than advertisements and bills, LOL
Well, that's what i've been doing.
It feels so good to have time to sew again.
Have A Magnificent Day!
