I needed a clothespin bag in a hurry. Mine was literally falling apart. I have a terrible habit of leaving it out on the line, and the sun has just about disentegrated my old one. I found lots of great tutorials for sewing really cute clothespin bags, but I did not have enough time for them. So Audrey donated a shirt and I sewed the bottom closed, put it on a child's hanger and it was ready to use!
The weight of the pins stretched it a bit and it is now a little "longer" than when I took the photo, but it is still working well.
Update a few minutes later...I decided I don't like the stretch of the shirt bag. So I stole a pair of Philip's overalls. They had snap leg bottoms...I hate snap leg baby pants. They always pop open, it's so much easier to just take them off to change the diaper. So here's the new bag. Isn't it adorable?

(the cover doesn't look like one I would normally want, but it has other themes inside that are really great looking)

I found this recipe for REALLY good, REALLY easy cinnamon rolls. This is a picture before they were cooked. After they were finished and we put the icing on them I forgot to take another picture...we were too busy eating them. The original recipe calls for regular white sugar. The lady who posted the version I found on craftster said she used brown sugar. I tried it both ways and the brown sugar is better!

After a little research I identified my little friend. A "glass lizard" has no legs and therefore looks like a snake (though it really is a lizard), so that couldn't be it. I believe it is a "Southeastern Five-Lined Skink." Compare it to this picture.
