Playing with some new embroider designs...

A tea towel with some yummy blueberries and a 
simple crocheted edging.
The pattern is The Berry Patch.
The pattern for the embroidery on the clothes pin bag
is Grandma's Back Yard.
I can see myself making a few more of these for gifts.

I love clothes line embroideries and when
I find a new design I end up making another clothes pin bag.

I've made a few over the last few years...
which one is your favorite?

here they are all in a row...
I'd say they are all looking pretty cute.

The middle one was a practice one...plain and simple.
Then I added ruffles and an extra pocket and that is
the one I use...(second from the right).
My favorites are the ones with the embroideries.
I have lots and lots of clothes pins and 
most of them are stored in
a log cabin.
I love it!!

I'm linking up to Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean.
Monday's Vintage Embroidery  with Super Mom

Happy Stitching...have a wonderful day!!


  1. I love the new black and white one.

  2. My favorite, hands down is Grandma's Back Yard. While they are all lovely I am partial to black work.

  3. Adorable! Yes, especially the blackwork one!

  4. You peg bags are gorgeous, Pauline. It's hard to pick a favourite.

  5. Ah! Gorgeous! And your photography is just fantastic. You have a really good eye. Want to come over and take my pattern pictures?? Thanks for the shout out. I absolutely love what you did with my patterns.

  6. I would never have thought it but I love the latest one - love, love, love that pattern and the colors both! blessings, marlene

  7. Pauline I am in love with your clothes pin bags!! Your embroidery sets them off so well. They look cute all in a row on the line.

  8. I love the daisies. At first glance the bags look like oversized bibs.... Adorable.

  9. Love the clothes pin bags. We can't have clothes lines around here (stupid), otherwise, I'd be trying to talk you out of one of those. I do have clothes pins in an old, ugly bag in the laundry room.

  10. when you said log cabin i was wondering where the picture was of the fabric contraption you could store the pins in outside.... then i laughed at the picture of the cute log cabin. i want one, don't know what i'd do with it but it is cute.

  11. I love your peg bags. They are a great idea

  12. Such pretty peg bags - you are very clever. I made myself a peg apron out of pretty blue fabric to put my pegs in.

  13. I love them all... it would be too hard to choose just one as a favorite. I miss having a clothesline as I love the smell of sheets that have dried on the line.

    Thanks for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. It was fun to see all the different clothespin bags you've made.

  14. Oh your clothespin bags are so cute. DH will not let me have a clothesline. He opposes anything that has to be mowed around.
