The big red barn


Couldn't find a barn pattern so I designed one myself. This took a fair few hours to tat as you can imagine. My hands are feeling it, but the Fair entries are due on Monday so I have a lot of work ahead of me this weekend.

Well I think your barn is really great and it is also one of a kind.

LadyShuttleMaker,
I love it! Your barn is just like the ones that everyone is letting fall to the way sides. Your animal will surely love their home!

Miranda said...

Wow, you will be dreaming of red split rings tonight! It's very cute.

Eliz (tatknot) said...

With that many split rings, I don't doubt your hands are bothering you! But, oh, Sherry, it looks sooo cute! Can't wait to see it all together.

Karen said...

Very, very nice, Sherry. Are you going to add one of Jane's roosters from the TIAS? It's so good to see you back. Karen in OR

A few hours?! I think that would take me at least a week! I love it! I can't wait to see how you put it all together!

Donna said...

Sooo...cute. Any barn animal will be proud to call this home.

Looking forward to seeing everything together - they are all so cute!

Fair entry for us is today...Bailey is trying to finish up one more project before we head out to enter things!

Lily said...

Love the Barn. I'd live in that (if I were an animal!!) ;-)

Sure hope you do great at the fair! Your work looks awesome! :)

Tara said...

That is soooo cute!

Since you created that pattern, will it ever be available?

I'm new to tatting & I am impressed by what people do with it.

Marty said...

Great barn! Surely doesn't look like one ones around my dad's part of Idaho! ;) You are going to show off the put-together piece, right??

Brilliant barn design! Get ready for a Blue Ribbon plus Best in Show! I doubt they've seen anything like the tatted animals and barn!

There will be many smiles on the visitors' faces! Hope you get to observe everyone as they walk by!

I think the barn is great and gives the whole project the wow factor. Good luck getting everything finished. Then you can rest your poor hands.

Bonnie said...

You have been super busy, all of your fair entries are super neat. I'd like to see them all together. Good Luck!

That looks great... how many hours went into it?

How about a fence? That would take up some room and define the barn from pasture
