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 is almost over and....

I finally got my rep weave done!!!! I like it!!! I wanted to add some more color and decided to add a border. I had enough fabric to make some napkins.  I was going to cut one of the runners and make place mats but my friend Susan thought it would be a good idea to keep both of them and overlap them when I needed four--I really like that idea
I like the darker side better but think it would be fun to use both.
So its on to another project--think I am going to do a rag rug--


  1. These are really beautiful Barb. Almost too pretty to eat on.

  2. They turned out great. What weft did you use?

  3. Love your color choices - the bright blue with the darker blue and muted green and that gold mmmm! -- really sparks it up. Perfect for your vase!
