A Few More Rounds

Happy Weekend to you all!

I'm still working on the large doily. Yesterday it was a hot mess because I have not blocked it yet. Here's yesterday's mess...

So, I started the next round connecting to the previous round. It really helped make sense of the pattern. Come to find might have seen this in Rhona's hanky which I tatted several months ago.

And for a close-up

Oh...and one more thing. I'm tatting an Anne Orr pattern from the 1930's. It's the large table doily on the cover of Tatting with Anne Orr. I've got two more rows before the round motifs around the outside.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. ...moving right along! Lookin' good!

  2. A big smile to you Fox!!
    I'm learning some about this pattern. I used 1/4" thread for the unfinished space throughout. I'll change that next time in the 2nd and 3rd rounds....I'd half that. The rest seems to be just right...we'll see.

  3. Would it be okay to use one of the photos for a personal project (has nothing to do with doilies :)) I just needed a large photo with a close up of a table. I would be happy to give you credit for the photo and send you a link once its done.
