my new go to birthday gift

Welcome to crazy week.  The spouse is doing some traveling, someone little has a birthday, and I'm getting ready for a long weekend of sewing with friends.  Truth be told, in all the chaos, I forgot to take Lulu to her yoga class yesterday.  So when I was asked to join in with some friends to celebrate some birthdays, there was a moment of panic about what to give as a gift. It can be difficult to come up with a quick gift that works for anybody, any age, any time, but these heavy duty cardboard covered notebooks fit the bill.

Simply choose your layout and stitch them down with a small zigzag stitch.  Be sure to lock your stitches by reversing one or two stitches at the beginning and end of each line so the stitches don't unravel on you.
