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.

Two New Porjects

I spent a good deal of time last winter making rag balls out of all my unused quilting scraps!!!! It was a long winter!!! Anyway I finally decided to make a rug for my son and his wife in Colorado.  So far I have about 20" done--I want it to be about 60".  We will be visiting them in less than a month so I guess I should keep at it.

My second project is my version of a "penny rug".  I have always wanted to make one but did not want the usual version.  So I decided to make a bouquet of flowers.  It is all wool with embroidery and beads. Very fun to do.


  1. Both projects are really beautiful. They'll love the rug! Me, I can't wait until I get back to weaving...summer has consumed me.

  2. Nice, Barb. Can't wait to see in person.
