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.

A Smile is a Good January Thing

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.


  1. This angel looks like she's going to be trouble

  2. I mean, she looks like she won't put up with injustice, meanness, stinginess, or Scott Walker. just my opinion....

  3. She's a paid member of the ACLU---gotta love that girl--she is also my whacking angle--am goint to go and whack the present stuff I hate off the loom and let her watch--she will love it
