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.

Summer Fun

One of my favorite times in summer is going to Door County.  I have a friend who has graciously let us use her cottage in Baileys Harbor for the past ten years.  Its a great time--my daughter and her family go as well has Harry and I.  The boys stay a couple of days and then it just the kids, Liz and I.  We have great fun going to the beach and just hanging out.  It is nice to see teenagers who still love to dig in the sand! Of course sweet Violet Rose is too little to dig, but she did love to sleep on the beach.


  1. Oh, the sweetness of a little one sleeping on one's chest...just about nothing better.

  2. After an exhausting day demonstrating your indigo vat, this looks like a beautiful day. Relaxing for everyone
