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.
I think the rooster is the last animal for a bit. There are no more in my head right now. Who knows when the next one will come. They were really fun to make. Used a lot of scraps up and they make me smile
So this is my angel--she makes me smile! My inspiration was a set of Christmas plates that I got years ago--probably 25 or more. They are my favorite holiday things. They are by an artist from Japan named Kiki. I have tried looking on the web for more information but so far have found little. She is going to have a place of honor in our new nook. I like her a lot.
