I have Asperger's Syndrome and one of the things that I used to have a difficult time with was getting jokes. I dated a guy (once) that was a master at coming up with puns. I looked like the Victor dog looking at the Master's Voice.
So this quilt really challenged me, even though I have gotten a lot better at figuring out joke/puns. I thought that the puns had to have something to do with Coos Bay, so I ended up making this harder than it really was. Then just to add more difficulty I thought the members would be more impressed with the more puns one got on their quilt.
So I figured out 10 puns to add to the quilt. The name of the quilt is called Tow Boats on the River Bed. In Coos Bay they have tow boats that bring the barges into the bay from the Pacific Ocean. The puns are:
- tow boats
- smoke stack
- river bed
- crazy quilt
- rock bed
- sea level
- water table
- light house (which is quilted into the cloud and floating off)
- sun flower for the sun and which has one of the required fabrics
- little off (because I couldn't get the quilt squared up and keep hacking it till I decided enough)
