Oooh-oh, I'm quirky alright...

I found this on Denise's blog and curiousity got the best of me. It absolutely cracked me up, especially the picture. (I think his name is Scooter, don't you, Sue?)

Your Quirk Factor: 70%

You're so quirky, it's hard for you to tell the difference between quirky and normal.

No doubt about it, there's little about you that's "normal" or "average."

And sometimes you just have to make bowls...

I've done the Timtex bowls, but I like the ones made from canvas better. They have a much nicer feel. The question is, though, why do I feel compelled to give them away after I've made them. I've made many and never kept one.

When I got home today, I saw that my tree peony had decided to bloom. There must be 20-30 blossoms on it. It's a nice thing to come home to.

What in the world was I *thinking*??

I think I made this Lover's Knot quilt in the mid-80's. Maybe late 80's. (Maybe someone recognizes the tulip fabric on the black background. It was really popular at...some time.) I look at this now and marvel at what a hideous thing I produced. Maybe color tastes have seasons but this is just tooooo ugly. Off to Goodwill with this one.
