I find this 12-sided calendar a nice idea for a gift.
It is made for 2009 but you can adapt it to 2010 from the blank template yourself, possibly even handwritten and embellished with funny sketches.

There is also a German version.
Actually it’s time to bead me a nice necklace, e.g. this spiral chain.
At least I find that I should ;-)
She says that it is an easy stitch that is worked quickly.
Once I tried the stitch and I find that she’s right.
Only I gave the necklace away and took (of course!) no photo before.
Well, I have to make it again, this time for me ;-)
