Magical Monday #9: A Barn Raising August 12 2019

This week I raised a barn...well sort of, anyway! And it looks pretty interesting. As I've said before, I no longer have a needlearts shop anywhere near me, which is a total bummer. This leads me to a dilemma....I found the absolute perfect fiber in the perfect color (barn red, of course!) in my stash, for the barn. The problem is, I have no idea exactly what fiber it is, or the company who made it. See photo below, for reference. And, without a nearby needlearts shop, I cannot even pop in and try to match it up. I'll do my best to contact one of the awesome shops via Facebook to see if I can send them a sample, and hopefully I'll be able to share with you all what I used.
