Precious Cargo



Ok I admit it...what is precious to me may not be precious to someone else...I get it!  We had a very smooth trip without a hiccup except initially at the Portland Airport G had TSA precheck and I did not...so my bag had to be examined.  Of course it may have looked suspicious to anyone but another stitcher.  I have been told that you pack your carry on bag with the stuff you can't live without.  Which meant my bag was packed with my stitching projects, my threads and stitching supplies!!!...and of course my stitching pillow.  

I again am grateful for being alive during this time where I can receive photos via text of my grandson and also of Enzo who is comfortable at home with a friend who is house sitting :)  I know Enzo is having a blast but I am sure Silas is bereft at not seeing his nana and G!!!

Let the adventure begin!!!

  1. So glad the first leg went well without a hitch! I was concerned with the weather bomb forecast and snow in Florida that you might have issues flying.

    Let the party begin!

  2. Traveling by air can be a challenge! I am glad my daughter’s family had an uneventful flight home from us on Tuesday. She packed her new quilt from me, and it made it home safely too.

  3. I love that TSA Pre-Check. Its a hassle getting it, and not cheap, but does save time. We got the Global Entry card, but I'm not expecting a trip out of the country anytime soon. Enjoy the cruise, wishing you calm seas and lots of warmth!

  4. One time while visiting my parents in Scottsdale the airline lost my luggage. Since I did not have my name on it I had to give them a description of the bag and some identifying article inside to prove it was mine once they found it. All I could think of was my orange pjs with the feet. I don’t think I have ever been so embarrassed as I was then ever again. Lol
    Glad you had a great trip.

  5. I have never flown, think it would stress me out, lol. Someday I will have to if I want to go further than New England;)

  6. I took my sewing machine (as my carry on) with me to Minnesota for a sewing week with my sisters this fall. TSA pulled it out for a check...and the officer got a chuckle when I said it was the only item I couldn't replace when I got to Minneapolis.
