elle est arrivée (and I’m not talking Beaujolais Nouveau!)

Posted on November 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Yes I’m back in Utah, AGAIN!  This post is kinda 2 posts in one, apart from the fact I have been too busy to post I have had limited to no internet for a week.  Now, as someone whose whole life IS the internet not having access for one day seems like a month, can […]

Stunning art quilts

Posted on November 09, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I have joined two quilt guilds since I moved to SoCal and have made some wonderful friends. The first guild I joined was "Beach Cities" very big but they have some wonderful speakers and it was there I joined a friendship group and met Jan, Paula, Sandi and Barbara.  We called ourselves "The Forgetful Stitches" […]

Those Crazy Cats

Posted on October 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I just did a workshop at one of my quilt guilds, Flying Geese. It was a short 3 hour lesson on how to make a quilt called Those Crazy Cats by Buggy Barn. I just thought it was so cool I took some photos to show you.  No this is NOT the one I made, […]

Cool Quilt Show

Posted on June 07, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well I thought it was cool anyway but as Tim says I'm raving mad.  After all you have to be mad to take perfectly good pieces of fabric, cut them up and sew them back together again.  Well I never said I had that strong of a grip on reality ;o) Being new to California […]

Quilts, Quilts, Quilts

Posted on May 10, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well It is Laurens birthday tomorrow and as they are spending today at Disneyland I know they won't be reading this blog so I can now release pictures of the quilt I have made for them. This first quilt for Lauren was the one I mostly finished at the retreat.  Here you can see the […]

Utah to California to Utah to California

Posted on March 27, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Weird but it's exactly what happened.  We left Utah the first week of February which meant we hit California when the rain was also hitting it.  Not a big problem as after all I knew all I would be doing the first 3 weeks or so there was going to be unpacking. I'm getting ahead […]

Oh Kathy, what have you done to me?

Posted on January 20, 2010 by sonjabarrie

   Oh Kathy, what have you done to me? You're supposed to be my best friend!  I only made dresses before I met you and now I am so into quilting it's threatening to engulf me. I have 46 boxes of fabric stash and sewing related "stuff", and the worst part is I can't bear […]

Fun weekend at a Quilt Retreat

Posted on November 25, 2009 by sonjabarrie

I have just had such a fun weekend.  I have wanted to go on this quilt retreat for years but either something got in my way or it was full and I was wait listed.  This year I managed to get on the second one (the first one is always full of the regulars who […]

Good news and new meds BUT………………………..and some weird irony.

Posted on March 02, 2009 by sonjabarrie

Nothing is ever easy is it? It has taken me a while to get this written because sitting at the PC starts to send shooting pains into my eye after about an hour so when I am sitting here I have to do that horrible 4 letter word ‘work’ which precludes me from writing my […]

Thoroughly pissed off of Utah here!

Posted on February 17, 2009 by sonjabarrie

Well I think enough of you have seen the back and forth about my eye enough to know it’s a pain in the proverbial! Well, now it’s worse than that!!!!!! I have to cancel my vacation to Costa Rica as my eye has taken a nose dive. Could someone please tell me how, when I […]
