BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 3

Sandy Fitzpatrick, Beth Ferrier, and Cheryl Sleboda are today’s featured BERNINA Ambassadors. Please don’t tell Beth but I’ve wanted to be her for a long time. Not her really but she’s been part of my quilting life for as long as I can remember.  Cheryl has become a friend, and mentor listening, sharing, offering advice as I approach some new things in my quilting life. Sandy has stylized appliqué patterns that are so fun, bringing delight to the maker, and viewer.

A few years ago a friend and I participated in an online art class. Part of the fun was learning about different styles of art. How a new style will be considered “outsider” art, until it’s accepted by the general community as something worthy of owning. During the course we made different kinds of art, including mail art.  Thinking of art reminded me of my uncle Bill Harris, who worked for the Boothbay Register, and created lots of art. (Art runs deep in our family.) The author references my uncle’s successful sale of powdered (freeze-dried) Maine Seagull Poop. This story is legendary and once appeared in Readers Digest. One of us has photos of the chalk board art he did for a local bakery every day on his way to work. This gift of art lives on.

I’ve started working on The Moon is Made of Cheese, Cheddar Cheese.

Oh good golly miss megan I’m thrilled so far.
