As a kid, I spent many lazy, summer days fishing, swimming, and catching frogs at our family pond. Mom made our favorites for Sunday afternoon picnics and sometimes, there were overnight adventures with a campfire, roasting hot dogs and making smores.
Some of my happiest childhood memories were at the cabin, and I dreamed of living there when I grew up. Thankfully, I married someone who embraced my dream, and we built our own cabin almost twelve years ago amidst the wheat fields and prairie grass, just up the hill from the pond. I love sleeping with the windows open, listening to the bullfrogs at night, waking to the birds singing in the morning. I enjoy watching our grandkids fish and catch frogs, just as I did as a kid.
We still have campfires with smores on cool evenings, watching the wildlife as they carefully watch us. This year, were adding a new studio onto the cabin. Its the perfect place to design fabric and quilts, inspired by nature and childhood prairie dreams.
