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.

It's Done--and I love it. It started out 70" long and shrunk to 54". The width did not shrink much, less than an inch. So my next one will have to be a lot longer!!! I did weave off the rest of the warp but I only had about 20" so I am not sure if it will ever be anything. I really liked this project-I learned a lot and it was fun to see the calculations work out. So maybe I will put on another one!!!!!
