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 don't usually get two things in a row that I like--but these I do. This is the "book" bag I made for the LaFarge Library fundraiser. It is cotton and linen and should be great to put books in to carry back to the library! I like to make these bags, they are simple to sew and they use up a lot of odds and ends. All of my bobbins are now empty!
This is a bag I made out of my "rug" wool. I figured the only way I wasn't going to try another rug was to get rid of the stuff so it would not tempt me. Its pretty big. I think it would be a good bag for car trips, for all that "stuff" that flies about. I may also give it away to some unsuspecting soul.
