I made it!

This was my view as I flew into Phoenix Friday night.

It was the first time I have gotten here so late. I missed seeing the mountains but the lights were a welcome sight too. One step closer to seeing my kids!

This was the first time I flew with a sewing machine. Yes, Terri, I really did! But not just for quilting, I plan to help Daughter #2 to make curtains for her new house. I might have brought along a wee bit of piecing as well….. Anyway, someone asked about the case I used. Here it is, the original case that came with it.

I used that luggage strap as a safety measure. I was afraid I would have to check it on my first flight as it was a small commuter plane. I talked to the gal at the gate and told her I’d rather not. She said it would fit under the seat and to keep it with me. I did the same on the next flight. They did an extra scan of it in security but I told them what it was and it all went quite smoothly.

Saturday was the 1st Birthday party for sweet Baby L. He really enjoyed his cake!



I love all of your comments but likely will not take the time to respond individually as I normally do this week. If you have questions, I will try to answer them in the next blog post. I leave you all with a photo of something I have been missing. This is what is known as blue sky.

    So glad you (and your machine) arrived safely! It is wonderful to be able to visit family and what a wonderful birthday party! I have sometime thought of traveling with my Featherweight, but have been so afraid both for making it through TSA and the flight. I would have developed an ulcer if I had to check it! Enjoy your blue sky and visit.

    Yay! So glad you made it (and that your little FW got to travel with you!). Certainly looks like the birthday boy enjoyed his cake! Have a wonderful time.

    So glad to hear your trip went well and that you were able to keep the FW with you along the way. As light as it is, it must have been a bit cumbersome to get from one flight to the next with it. I don’t think I could handle it at my age. I *love* the case.

    Baby “L” is just adorable! He is as fair as his little cousin is dark. Wouldn’t you just love to see them playing together?? Have a wonderful time, Katy!
