I'm not sure who's going to be more excited on Ruby's birthday...her or me.
We've chatted for ages about her getting her own machine and I decided at 9 she was probably old enough. I wanted to wait until I felt she was old enough to have it in her room and be responsible enough to use it on her own there.
The night before her birthday I'm going to put it up on a new desk in her room, that will also be a surprise.
I am beyond excited to see her reaction when she wakes up.
I am well aware that I am going to have to have nothing else planned for that entire day, so we can both play at her machine all day. It's going to be a hardship.
I am also well aware that I am going to have to keep my fabric stash under lock and key from here-on-in...
