Thought of you Rita!
I bought a bag of batting at a garage sale for .25 cents earlier in the summer and got it out last night to use in some baby blankets. As I unfolded the first piece, there was something dark in it - a beetle! And then I found a second one! Ewwww! I picked them out and flushed them and then did a micro inspection of the rest of the batting which was all clear. Even so, it made me think twice about using it!!!
I thought of you, Rita, and finding that little bug inside your finished hand-quilted quilt! I'm sure you were glad when he was removed!
