Welcome To My blog--my name is Barb and I am a weaver in a small town in Wisconsin called Dell. Actually it is more of a place than a town but I love living in the middle of nowhere. I am a weaver and my studio name is"COULD HAVE BEEN A PIANO" I always said I was going to learn how to play the piano, but as luck would have it I met a wonderful group of women weavers and was hooked. I have been weaving for three years or so but have been addicted to fiber since I started knitting when I was about 10. I still love to knit and do some spinning and dying as well. I love natural fiber and texture. I like to use thrift store finds and use my imagination.

Spring In Wisconsin
It is an early spring in Wisconsin, temperatures in the 80's. We usually don't see these until May or June. In honor of the early spring I wove this scarf. It is mostly linen with a few cotton accents. I like it because it is very long and fun to wear. I hung it in my old apple tree. The scarf is my donation to the Driftless Art Festival silent action which will be held on May 15th.
