I really liked the travel kit idea with the altoid box. So I went and decorated mine with pretty stickers. Check it out! Thanks Scarlet Quince!

I like the decorated box very much!

I want to mention something that was just brought to my attention: although it's fine to carry scissors and needles on US domestic flights, they MAY not be allowed on international flights or flights originating in some countries. You should definitely check with your airline or the local security agency before starting to the airport with your grannie's heirloom scissors. Anyway you're better off traveling with a second (or nth) best pair in case you lose them, they get confiscated (even if that's not supposed to happen), etc.

Here's a link to the current TSA list of banned and allowed items:
http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm

I checked a British Airways list and it doesn't mention scissors or things like that at all, as allowed OR forbidden. (And yes, scissors WERE banned for a while in the US, but the ban has been lifted here. I'm just not sure about other locations.)

Good point!

Thankfully we are travelling by car this time. Whew!
Too bad I get car sick when I read or focus on small things. It should be about a four hour drive one way. Think of all the stitching I would get done. We are heading to Crater Lake, Oregon.

I can't stitch in a car; I've tried, and it just doesn't work for me. I used to be able to read anywhere, anytime, but since I had kids, now I can only read when we are going relatively straight on an interstate - no twisty, winding roads (all there is, here in N. GA) and reading for me. I pretty much just sleep, since DH won't let me drive - some stupid man-thing about being a passenger.... Confused

I have never been able to do anything in the car - motion sickness - ugh. These days I listen to audio book, of course, I am the only one driving. I can just see me stitching on a trip... And they say cell phones are dangerous

Hey barmarch: Pssst... I know you! Wink

I'm the same way with motion sickness. I can listen to music, but reading is right out.

I WISH my husband insisted on doing all the driving! I hate to drive. Razz
