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.

Hiking to Finger Lake

Went for a hike to Finger Lake and some
of the early wildflowers were out and
about. It is still chilly here and we had
some snow yesterday.

Teddy Roosevelt National Park

Ran across this guy in the park. There were heards of bison all over the place. Also saw some wild horses. Went on a hike and picked up some fiber--it was really soft and maybe I will spin it into something. This park is really beautiful and it was the perfect time of year to be there.

I Amost Whacked It

I started making a linen and sari silk scarf that was really cool, that is until I started weaving it. The sari silk tore, freyed, got stuck and drove me nuts!! If it wasn't so expensive I would have whacked it. Instead I cut it out of the warp and kept on. When I finished it wasn't long enough for a scarf so I made a Mobius strip cowl instead. What do you think?
