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.

Good, not so good.....
Sometimes it takes me a long time to figure it out!!!! I finished both my rag rug and penny rug. I love the penny rug--the rag rug--not so much. Don't get me wrong, I love rag rugs. It just seems when I make them I have a "vision" in my head that just never turns out. So I am kissing my rags goodbye. For anyone that wants some I will bring them to the next weavers and feel really good that they are going to a good home. I am really enjoying the wool, beads, applique process and have another in my head--it is all animals and so far I have the giraffe mostly done. I am also starting another rep weave--this one will be for my husbands bathroom. Right now I am moving heddles--but maybe next week I will be able to start warping it.
