Tumalo Trails/Cowboy Up top is done
I'm fiddling through an unfamiliar method to add photos - always confusion --I accidently DID IT!
Above is my finished top, Tumalo Trails, aka Cowboy Up, because those plaid look so ... country and western-like. This design is from Quiltville.com - many thanks, Bonnie! Not shown is another medium value 2-inch finished blue border around the last edge. Dimensions now are approx. 86 x 105. It will take up about 4 to 6 inches each way after quilting. Binding will be dark blue, same as that narrow dark blue flange in the photo. That wiggly looking fabric is really a tiny blue and white stripe.
Another subject - a mystery -- below is my favorite cake pan that I love because it has the metal top that snaps into place. and the aluminum is heavier than other cake pans. I don't do much cooking any more. However, look at those holes!!! Where did they come from???? I had just finished baking ribs and poured off the grease, then baked with BQ sauce. I don't see any puddle of grease in the oven, I didn't smell any grease smoking or burning as I slow-cooked the ribs. When I went to wash it - OMGOsh and there are even MORE, not seen in the photo! I tried to stab a hole in the pan with a knife to see if the pan was actually worn thru, nope - I couldn't make a dent, much less a hole. Dishwater just dribbled thru those holes. This metal is not thin and wimpy. Note the holes are not where one would cut bar cookies or a cake. A mystery! DRAT!
