Cotton





What a wonderful thing cotton is.  It can be used in so many ways.  One of my favorite ways is in cotton fabric.  The fabric that lasts years and years and years.  Quilts and items made from this fabric are some of the best.  I love the look and feel of cotton.  It is cotton pickin time here in South Carolina.

  2. It was so funny, many years ago I was helping my daughter with her school work and something came up about where we get wool. She got the question wrong so I asked my husband to tell her. He absent mindedly said, from cotton! I had to laugh. "What, do you think?" I said. Each boll says Baaaaah when you pick it! It's been a joke ever since. I had to stop at the Arkansas Welcome Center with them and demonstrate what cotton plants were. They had a display patch growing out front.

    1. Hey Kristina,
      I couldn't tell you because I personally have never planted it. I don't see much that they do to it so it must be pretty easy.
