    Sounds like everyone is keeping busy. Glad you got the bags, SD. Would love to see photos of the inside and how the machine fits, etc.

    Dark and drizzling again here today. At least it is not ice. Thought about going over tot he nearest grocery store and grabbing the $4 advertised strip steaks, but it can wait. Supposed to be nicer tomorrow, I can grill them for dinner.

    Too dark to do any sewing or needlework. My wrist was really swollen last night, so today I'm just hanging out, taking it easy.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I have done exactly nothing today but be a recliner potato and mess about on the internet. Maybe I haven’t recovered from the feasting.

    Anyone not interested in boring bag details can skip this post and the bag posts to follow.

    I'll start with some measurements. My sewing machine is a Brother LX2763. It's small and lightweight, perfect for dragging along away from home. It measures 15.5W x about 13H x 6 D.

    This post refers to the large bag, the one with wheels. I think the back and bottom are the same as the pics of the second bag on Menards site above. Bag interior measures 17W x about 12.5 H to the fold x 6.25D from front to wheel wells.

    All 4 sides of all 3 bags have rigid material between outer shell and lining. Should protect my machine nicely. No padding.

    Bag with machine in it. The white PVC is the legs for my bed extension. Gray skinny thing is extension. Spacing worked out perfectly to keep machine from moving around. Bag came with Velcro at fold of the back, so it was easy to add loops to hold PVC without damaging bag. Lucky! 2019 Stash Management-20191129_165925_1575069988796.jpg

    Inside pockets. Wheel wells at back corners. The 7th pocket is on left side near front. Loops of Velcro are what I added. I plan to remove a couple seams eventually to make 2 pockets wider.2019 Stash Management-20191129_170207_1575070238762.jpg

    Wide mouth opening with heavy duty zipper. Nice! No fighting a flap to get machine in and out. All 3 bags have the wide mouth feature. 2019 Stash Management-20191129_170403_1575070391978.jpg

    Outside pockets. Large center pocket with flap and 2 double pockets on front, plus 3 single pockets on each end.2019 Stash Management-20191129_170242_1575070505107.jpg

    The handles are heavy and shaped in the center so they're comfortable.

    Any other questions, let me know.

    More on the other bags later.

    Whoops, wrong button, so here's the rest of post 3.

    Backs of bags 2 and 3:
    2019 Stash Management-20191129_175849_1575072338059.jpg

    All 3 bags also have card holder for luggage tags.

    Hope this helps, CH. 🙂

    Sale price for 3 piece set is good through Monday and you might be able to get a rain check if sold out since they carry these all the time.

    Thanks, Martha. I like the new bags much more than I expected to.

    One thing I hadn't really considered with the new bags is how much easier they will be to handle than the suitcase I was using, and which I still like. But with the suitcase, I have one heavy chunk of stuff to lift in and out of the van. The new bags will be easier because of being 3 separate lighter chunks to lift individually. I will like that a lot. Much easier on my back.

    In my posts above, I forgot to mention the web handles of the two smaller bags slide over the telescoping handle of the big bag, so nothing can fall off. Since the tops of the bags are flat, they also stack fairly securely.

    One thing I saw on a sewing trolley is a removable pocket that attaches to the back of the trolley to hold a cutting mat. That would be easy to duplicate and I probably will make a pocket for my new set, too.

    Tomorrow I have to make dog food but hope to get back to working on the table runner, too. I can't wait to get it done so I can see what it looks like.

    I did end up cutting 1/2" off my sewing machine extension. That allows it to sit upright in the big bag and since it's slightly taller than my machine, it helps protect the little parts sticking out the top. It worked out nicely.

    NWS keeps pushing back the arrival of what they're still calling a historic storm. It was supposed to be here yesterday by 2 PM, then it was 6 AM today, now it's noon. They also are now saying our immediate area is supposed to get minimal snowfall, 1-4 inches. All this is fine by me if it happens. We'll be happy to avoid the brunt of the coming mess. They haven't backed off on the 40 mph winds, so we're likely to lose power. Hope that's the worst that happens. But I want to sew!

    SD - the bags and your sewing machine are a match made in heaven! I’m glad they’ve worked out so well for you.

    There’s now one more thing I don’t have to go to town for. Haircuts. It turns out that LG’s dad is a pretty expert hair cutter. I got a free hair cut last night in my living room as good as anything I get at the walk in places in town. Now, if Kroger would just open a store down the road ....

    I need to finish putting the craft clutter away since I didn’t do it yesterday, but I hope it won’t take long. Then I need to go through my patterns and decide which one I want to try the half stitch on. It will be like working a needlepoint. The examples I have seen look good.

    Our arriving weather keeps getting delayed too. The whole circulation must have slowed. We’re still in the muggy 70s but that should begin dropping some by evening.

    It's in the 50's here already, going to be a nice sunny day. I can mark the grid for the cardinal pattern and maybe get a few stitches in. Lots to do today. DH said yes to putting lights up.

    SD, the bulk of the storm is sitting over the Dakotas and moving SW. I don't think you'll get much in your area. It's kind of stretching out and breaking up as it moves north. Thanks for the pics of the bags.

    Great shopping finds, M! You did better than I did when I was at Michael's earlier this week. I bought a photo storage/gift box to put DH's present in, and a little clump of christmas bells to decorate the mailbox with. It's still fall here.

    Oh, DH just set a paper plate on fire in the microwave. Note to self, do not get fancy Thanksgiving plates with gold foil on them next year.

    I found out the neighbor I was going to make the pin cushion for isn’t sewing anymore beyond occasional hemming. So guess I’ll make the pincushion for me. Her daughter said she loves coffee and her cocoa at bedtime, so I’m getting her some Ghirardelli cocoa mix packets. That’s all the Christmas shopping done.

    Our rain has started so it should begin to cool down.

    Got the 3 strips of the runner sewed, but one block is in the wrong place so have to correct that. I was multitasking while making dog food, so it could have been worse. I hope I can get this done tomorrow. My schedule looks open for a change. Housework? What housework?
