In the spring, I installed a clothesline.
I grew up in a house with a large suburban backyard that easily accommodated a 30 foot clothesline which was well used.
Our home is urban and our backyard is only 18 feet wide. I have been wanting to install a clothesline, but was having trouble finding something suitable. I finally found a Minky (which has the Royal Warrant!) retractable clothesline at Canadian Tire. It is perfect for an urban backyard. My husband likes his shirts air-dried and I find the girls' sundresses dry well on the line. The girls have become very interested in the clothesline and enjoy hanging their own dresses up to dry.
Given the girls' new interest in laundry, I thought it would be fun to stitch up a clothespin bag. I used a pattern by the Tie Dye Diva. The fabric is Trefle Matryoshkas in Cream by Kokka.

I also made a second for a housewarming gift.
Have a great week!
