:: Curious Cotton- a Second Dose ::

And so, because you're curious...

You remember I decided to wash this cotton from out of the back of the settee
if not...just click that link up there ^


Rinsing the cotton batting. 

 Wringing the cotton (actually that is a rolling pin) 

Drying it in the HOT TEXAS SUN!!! 
105° that day. 

At this point it is dried and pretty thin...
but it isn't ORANGE. 
...and it smells good!

** much shorter!!  @__@

What is next for this cotton?
Well...I'm hopefully, going to fluff it put it back into layers (stay tuned for the next installment of washing cotton and the "sitting- on- the- edge- of- your- seat- and-ever-so- intense- video -series" ); and then put it back into the settee before too long!

Thanks so much for following along... and for the record...
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE EITHER..!!! (Suzan) ;)

(I must give credit to the resident 4 year old Ms. Bree...for all photos with Oma handling the cotton...SHE DID NOT INHERIT MY BAD PHOTOGRAPHY GENE.)

what a job! Now for stage two, putting it all back on, but at least it nice and clean!

Great photographer! The before picture made me think of a dead body. LOL. Hope it fluffs up well! Ann

Wow, that's quite a color difference! So what was the "squeaking" in the background of your video? One of your hens? You should have seen my Coonhound cock her head at that!

Well you certainly have determination and look how it's paying off !!!

Gail Wilson said...

I agree with Suzan... you have determination! :) So happy it smells better and is no long orange.

Wonderful video! I love to hear people talk, you don't have a heavy Texas accent like some people I know.
