    Is this stupid?

    I'm going to the Oregon Coast to a 5 bedroom beach house for 4 days. My two kids and their spouses and my granddaughter are meeting us there. I am bringing my sewing machine. Is that stupid? I have to stop and pick it up (it had repairs done on it) on the way to the coast, so I want to bring some fabric and maybe sew. There is a casino nearby and the beach a block away, but I don't think I can go 4 days without sewing. I really don't have any hand sewing to do. I just don't know if I should bring my fabric and machine in the house. I thought if everyone went shopping or something, I could sew. What do you think? It's my vacation.

    It is your vacation, do what you want to do.

    Go for it! Even if you don't use it, you will be ready if the opportunity presents itself.

    Well,
    I can only reiterate that it is YOUR vacation, so do what makes you happy!...that being said, anywhere I have the chance to sew, I will, usually its by hand, as can be hard to take my sewing machine some places; but if I could take my sewing machine, I would! So, enjoy your vacation, and post some pics of what you end up sewing!!
    Regards,
    Kif

    I never take any sewing when I take a vacation. I can sew at home. There are lots and lots of things I can't do at home like go walk on the beach with a granddaughter that I'd much rather do on vacation. You'll come back revived and refreshed and ready to tackle all your projects.

    Sounds like a great idea. If you want to sew, you will have everything ready, and if you don't then you don't have to. Have fun, and I hope the weather is pleasant for you.

    If your DGD is old enough, maybe use some time to teach her to sew!!

    Love the Oregon coast, but if weather turns rainy and you're stuck inside, you'll appreciate having your machine along. There's some nice quilt stores on the coast too. I wouldn't feel bad doing what you love to do and I'm sure meals and beach walks will still give you some family time. Enjoy.
