Minnesota Prairie

 Another in the Minnesota series.
This one has 5 hours of hand stitching on it.
A real labor of love. I love the fields in late July.
That is when we would go fishing.
By then all 45 acres of melons were cleaned of weeds
and picking would not start until August.
So we would get 2 weeks of fun in the waters
of Battle Lake. Fishing , swimming and eating fish.
I think it took 2 weeks to get the dirt and sweat
of field work out of our pores.
It was one way of keeping 6 kids busy.
