I am able to travel sometimes with my husband. And I have to admit, I was so happy when I found the perfect little take-along craft.
MFT Stamps sells both a Cross Stitch Tag Die and a Cross Stitch Rectangle Die that is perfect for a card front. I found a little pair of scissors that are TSA approved. They are actually from the manicure and nail department at CVS, but if they are smaller than four inches you are good to go.
So when it is time to go on a little trip I pack a small craft bag with the supplies I need. I cut my tags and card fronts ahead of time so I have plenty available. You can print all kinds of patterns from the MFT Resource Page on their Website. Basically, all you need are the Cross Stitch die cut papers, patterns from MFT Stamps, DMC Embroidery Floss, scissors, and a few needles. Not much at all, my little bag of supplies fits perfectly in my carry on.
We are going on a little road trip this week so I went ahead and bought some Fall colors of floss to do a little stitching while riding in the car. These Fall colors make me Happy!

I hope I inspired you to give cross-stitch a little try,
