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 made another strip bag--this one is for Michelle--we are working a trade. She is making a lamp shade and I am giving her this bag. I really like this project--mainly because there are no rules and some surprising things usually happen. I threaded this as a twill and started weaving a plain weave with it. I then remembered that my 4 treadles were still in a pattern and really liked what happened. I have to write it down so if I ever want to replicate it I can. Now I think I am going back to my "Green Book". I found a pattern that I really like and am going to make something really "Springy"!
