Cloverdale Road Design.....




Cloverdale Road....A memory of being at my papa and granny's at Springtime...ALWAYS bringing home to Tennessee armfuls of sweetpeas and buttercups, along with loads of other beautiful wildflowers that were picked from their field on Cloverdale Road in Rising Fawn, Ga..

My grandmother no longer lives there and the house has long since burned down....But the old rock house will forever be in my memories and the field of wildflowers will always be in my thoughts each year when Spring arrives...

~~hugs, Jen

Hi Jen,
Such a sweet design. It reminds me of my grandparent's home. It originally was a log cabin that was covered with wood siding. My cousin now owns the property and he exposed the logs on the inside.
It is amazing.
Many Happy Stitches,
Sandra
