Still plugging away!

I've now moved over to the bottom left and I completed this diamond and the two small motifs to the right. The small triangle is the start of another motif which will be along the bottom border. 

As you can see, I've started the next triangle.  I was working more on this one last night. While it is centered under the motif above (which is the way it's supposed to be) I discovered it was one stitch closer to the small diamond under the rose flower. After counting and counting I remembered that I had to make an adjustment further up in the design, but because it's been a few years I'd forgotten. Anyway, it's going to have to stay as it is, no one will know but me :-)  As I've mentioned before, lots of chart errors on this design, and some are more challenging to fix than others, but with the random placement adjustments won't be noticed in the finished piece.

Not much further to go now, finishing this is now my top priority!

The end really IS in sight and it's going to be so beautiful! You are right...you will be the only one who knows where the mistakes are and they probably add to the design :)
you can do it. you can do it.
