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.

Maybe Cool Colors Will Help

I am lucky enough that my weaving studio is in the shade until afternoon.  It has been OK with a fan until about 2:00. Then I make a mad dash back to the house and the air conditioning.  I started another rep weave.  I am not sure what the end product will be.  I have enough on for 2 place mats and a table runner, four place mats or I was thinking maybe I would use the fabric for a couple of bags.  We shall see when it is done.  I did get the warp done so maybe tomorrow Harry will help me wind it.

This is my dog Scraps-.  It's actually not really my dog but that is a whole other story.  He is my weaving companion.  He comes to the studio and sleeps while I weave.  He has good taste when it comes to places to lay!


  1. He actually looks great on that rug!!

  2. Great colors for your new project - that Harry's a gem.
