From Georgia

A few years ago we traveled through Georgia...we were not there to visit, but we did detour off the interstate and went down some local roads, both going and coming.  I had always wanted to see cotton growing since I love cotton cloth....for everything.  The above is one of a few blossoms we saw.

This is not the greatest of pics...but still, imagine the backbreaking work it would be to pick this field by hand.

So there you have it...the beginning of all my quilts.....

I have seriously wanted a few cotton seeds to see if I could grow it here.  I know I would have to start them in the house under a grow light because our season is not long enough.  Still I would like to try it someday.
Lorelei went home yesterday...nothing much happened while she was here...we did paint a shirt but I did not take a good photo of it.   She was wishing we could go to the creek, but it is flooded too much to go.  I am hoping that we get to go at some point this year because she enjoys it so much....

 These were taken 2 or 3 years ago....She will probably be like her mom, or grandma, and still enjoy doing this when she is an old lady!
