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 decided to take a short break from weaving. We took a trip last month out East. When I was in Canada I saw some great mosaic mirrors in a Craft Co-op and decided I would like to make some. A good friend, Angie, has a great stash of glass and I paid her a visit. On that same trip we went to Acadia National Park in Maine and I picked up some shells, pebbles and sea glass. The mirrors were a junk store find, I got two for $7. This one is going to Colorado as a gift. I miss weaving and am going to start some hemp towels next week.
