A nice weekend

Well the weather has been terrible, but I've had a really nice weekend. I finished work Thursday lunch, and the weather was really good then. A friend from work came around on the night to look at my stitching, as she wants to have a go, so I dug out something small, and gave here a skein of thread and some Aida. My friend wanted something a bit more challenging, so we chose a sampler with several colours, but no backstitching, and I'm going to kit that up for her. I'll see what her progress is on the small before I kit it up.
DD's school was closed for teacher training on Friday, so I cancelled what I had planned, and we went shopping for the day. By Saturday, I'd lost track of the days, and thought it was Sunday. I did some sorting out of some beads that were left over in kits, and now have them bagged up and labelled. I also made a start on the making up of my Summer Quaker exchange piece. Today, I finished making up the exchange piece, and also made up a Needle roll which I stitched a couple of weeks ago. Due to the atrocious weather I've not photographed it yet, it's just so dark here, so hope to get that pic tomorrow.
Tonight, I started a small band sampler, only a couple of bands left now, so hope to finish that tomorrow. The design is by Liberty Street Designs, can you guess which one I'm stitching?
