Picking Cotton in California

I recently had the opportunity to see my first 'live cotton field'. On a road trip, between the San Franciscco Bay area and Yosemite National Park, we drove through Merced and acres and acres of cotton fields.

So, we stopped the car and I got to pick some cotton to use in the Textiles class at the college.

Hi -

Love your blog. Looks like you are having lots of fun being creative so I wanted to share what my 6-9 year old students have created using textiles and other eco-friendly items. Thanks for sharing your story
