friday night stitching

Tennis is back on the agenda so I got to sit at home and stitch to my heart's content!
I have been plodding along with my down in the garden block this week and here is the progress so far....

What I needed to get a wriggle on with last night was my 'little bit french' swap item and my 'friends with benefits' swap item.
here is my little bit french...  I think I didn't centre my stitchery properly so I ended up with a little conspicuous space, so I thought I would fill it with a monogram.(the white blob is blocking out the initials of my swap partner as this is a secret swap)
I haven't decided whether to make it a doily or pincushion?

I made a start on the friends stitchery, will show a peak at that once it is done.
This one is a bit harder as my partner hasn't hinted at her favourite colours or styles to I am going to have to wing it a little.
Fingers crossed I choose correctly.
Happy stitching!
