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.
My husband and I have recently returned from a fabulous trip to Europe. We spent almost a month traveling by train throughout central Europe. I usually reject all things made in China but could not resist the "queen". I found her in Amsterdam (was she on vacation?). She is solar powered!!!!! Her purse has a mirror and when she is placed in a sunny spot she waves!!!!!! She makes me laugh. Now back to reality and I am going to weave again soon. I want to make some curtain material for my son and his wife. They are remodeling and some roman shades sound perfect. They are coming to Wisconsin next week and we will figure out the weave pattern then. Till then I will laugh with the queen.
