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.)
