A creative solution, block 10 done!

Today was a perfect day to stitch. It was a cold, dark sunday and all my household jobs were done. So I sat down on the couch and stitched. Until I found out I had been miscounting. I missed a WHOLE row of stitches in the border of the last three blocks. And I almost finished one of them. How to handle? Frog the whole block? No way! So I  figured out how to adjust the block, without having to adjust the other two blocks two.  I shortened the border and tree trunks in the upper section with one stitch. I frogged the bottom row and added a green row in it. After that I stitched the bottom row again. Is that creative or what?!
Next thing to show is my progress on Silvia. I have three repeats and a bit more done now. I think this comes along pretty well.

Sylvia is gorgeous. And grats on fudging the stitching so you didn't have to tear out the whole thing. That's wonderful!!! Keep your mind on your work from now on, lol. (I have the same problem sometimes, so don't feel bad!)

Getsiepiete wat een pech, maar eerlijk is eerlijk, het is geweldig opgelost zo.
Die Sylvia moet je maar niet meer laten zien, oeffffffffff.
Knuffels Chrissie.
PS kun je misschien die stomme code weg halen, daar wordt je niet goed van, kan hem bijna nooit ontcijferen.

Well done on finishing the block, and the adjustments to avoid taking it out are very clever, you can't even tell it isn't meant to be that way.
Love the lacy knitting too
