Let me set the stage for this story. I packed up all of my Christmas fabric yesterday to bring with me to the cabin. I carefully packed my treasured Christmas fabric into two In Between Stitches bags. The extra large bag and the next size smaller. I just left them on the floor in my sewing room for my dear husband to cart downstairs and out to the car. My husband never complains about anything and rarely will you hear a cross word (unless he's working on the plumbing!)......until yesterday. He carried a bag in each hand, so at least he was balanced! What's the problem? When we arrived at the cabin, he had to carry them again, down the driveway through the snow. Again, I'm hearing complaints and a few blue words coming from this very mild-mannered man and there was absolutely no plumbing involved!
Under the darkness of dawn, I conducted a weigh in on my antique Standard Computing Scale while dear husband slept. Here are the contents of extra large bag #1 ready to topple to the counter.
Medium bag #2 , along with the extra fabric from bag #1....
And it all has to go into this little cabinet that I bought for $5.00 at a garage sale a few years ago. First I had to take out all of the grand kids toys, and put in Grammy's toys.
The way I look at it is this. I was conducting a bag strength test for the shop for Melissa and Leslie. The extra large bag will hold at least 25 lbs and the medium one is good for 20 lbs of fabric. The very scientific test is complete, let the quilting begin.
