Instead of venturing to the land of nod, I spent the night spinning cotton.
|I call this colour - ghost of green|
Beautiful, natural colours of cotton. I'm fascinated and inspired that cotton has so many natural colours. Browns, golden, bage, green, red, white, and I bet even more.

Sometimes I feel like using my charkha wheel.
I've even been playing with cotton bolls and discovering different ways of preparing the fibre for spinning.
Then there's the plant...
These days, every time I want to grow something exotic, someone tells me 'it won't grow here'. In the past, I've believed them, only to find the next year that everyone is growing it.
So this year, I've stopped believing them and decided to try cotton for myself. So far it's right on schedule. Don't know if it will make fibre yet or not, but hope it does.
