I love where I live and this time of year when the cotton is ready to pick and the fields are so white and pretty. The fields remind me of the huge cotton field next to my grandmother's house when I was a little girl. Wanting to teach us the value of hard work one time my grandmother decided we all should pick some cotton and earn some money. What I thought would be fun was back breaking hard work with ants and gnats everywhere. Wish I remembered how old I was when this happened. I didn't earn enough money to buy an ice cream cone.
My grandmother made this quilt and it came into my mind it would be fun to remember her with a fall table in a cotton field. She has been gone for many years now but she lived to be 98!here.
