"I may be crazy, but I might just be the Lunatic You're looking for....."

Susasn Pickerell and Maria Elkins
Well...sort of...I sometimes think I am ADD when it comes to quilting and fun things....I'm madly trying to finish the Dayton Landmarks slice so I can hand it in on Saturday as well as catch up with the on-line class with Pamela Allen ("Think Like and Artist.").

I suppose thinking like an artist might include attention deficit disorder, but I don't think REAL artists suffer from this...I imagine they are more disciplined.

You see, I've been wondering about some of the new stuff out there..and when Maria Elkins contacted me about working with her on a new series she's hoping to do for Quilting Arts, I jumped at it.

Maria plans on a series of working with new materials...in this case, DeColorant.  I purchased some in Cincinnati  but haven't had a chance to use it yet and I thought it might work well for what I had in mind for a fabric for the next part of Pamela's lessons...of which I am woefully behind...and while I was at it, I thought I'd make it work with the Fast Friday Challenge too....and I'm late on that one as well. So...today, Debra Bentley, Susan Pickrell, Maria Elkins and I did all sorts of stuff with DeColorant...testing, messing up, seeing what happens if you do this or that....and we'll do some more on Friday.....so ....now I have to get back to the salt mines...but I thought you'd like to know what I'm up to ...before I end up strapped to an....oh, wait...that's in Billy Joel's song...not my life. :)

P.S. Apologies to Deb...she was working back at the ironing board when I took these....

Lisa, thanks so much for coming to play! So glad you brought Susan and Deb, too. It was lots of fun to bounce ideas off each other. I blogged about it, too, at http://mariaelkins.com/index.php/2011/09/four-heads-are-better/

Thanks to you too Maria! It was great fun and a pleasure to explore this stuff....Knowing what to expect and not expect is always a plus and doing it with you, Deb and Susan was even more fun!
