Red Barn, Weare NH

Now that I have finished the "haftas" I can get started on something I've been wanting to do for a while - make more barns.  This is the barn door of the barn I started last night.

My barn takes its inspiration from this red barn on the side of Rt 114 in Weare NH. ("Weare" is pronounced exactly like: "wear", "where" and "ware." And yes, all Weare residents have heard "You live where?")

Here's the first floor of my barn. The sign above the real barn's door reads "The Farmer's Place" and then gives the street address. Since I am making this barn, I can make my sign read whatever I want, and I thought "only you can make it happen" was appropriate.

/This looks like a really fun project. Sometime in my future I will build a house of sorts then embellish with embroidery. I sure hope you post about your progress!

Terrific bit to use for signage above the doors -- happy barn building!
