Notes from a travelor...

From Travel Blog Post

As I'm spending some time on the road these days I thought I'd share a couple of things that I deem absolutly essential for those of us who have to carry on a rolling bag along with a computer, portfolio, plus stitching items.

First up is the type of bag.  Namaste puts out a great, big bag with tons of pockets that will fit only a computer and portfolio but also a pretty large scroll frame or needelpoint canvas on 14x14 frame or most middle to small works plus thread case.  Here is a link to my local needlepoint store which carries them.

This small needle and scissor case is just the perfect size to carry a small pair of scissors plus packets and loose needles.  Don't forget your needle threader for tricky little threading situations.  Scissor rules: nothing over 4" will be allowed in an airport.  Definitely do not take a pair of heirloom or expensive scissors.  I picked up this little, sharp pair for less than $10 and will not be completely devestated if they are ever lost.

    Someone has made a photo album of all the Japanese Embroidery pieces on display at Woodlawn Plantation. Hope you enjoy browsing this while you wait for a plane.
