Anne Orr Edging Adaptations

This is just an original Anne Orr edging that I have re-written

This is my first adaptation

And this is my second adaptation

Next Anne Orr Edging

I haven't adapted this Anne Orr edging, just written out the pattern in modern tatting language.

Anne Orr Edging Adaptations 1

We have been asked by Georgia Seitz of the On-line Tatting Class to adapt some of Anne Orr's tatted edgings and write out the patterns/diagrams in modern tatting language.
When there is enough to put into a booklet, it will be sold to raise funds for the Palmettos Tat Days sponsorship.
Here is my take on two of them so far. In the ecru one I have slightly adjusted the stitch count and made the centre picot a long one.

Ms Orr calls the pink and white one Pheasant's Eye and so I thought that beads would be perfect for this. Again I have made the centre picot longer.

Oval Doily in ecru now finished!

The doily is now finished. I have also finished the written pattern, but I have offered it to Georgia Seitz, to help raise funds for Palmettos sponsorship. If it is that she is not in a position to sell it to fellow tatters, then I will post it on my blog for free as usual.

Oval Doily in Ecru 3

Here is the doily, now a little bigger. I'm quite enjoying this pattern, it seems to be flowing naturally without having to re-do any rounds.

Oval Doily in Ecru - 2

Here, as promised, is a photograph of the next few rows of this new doily. So far each row has worked in very retro-tatting! Mind you, as it gets bigger, this will probably change! LOL!

Oval Doily in Ecru

Having finished all my projects and having nothing in particular to do I thought I would make an oval doily to put on my new television table, which itself is oval, and is in black glass.
This is the start. I have done a couple of more rounds and will post a picture when it is bigger still. I am writing the pattern out as I go, for a change. This makes life much easier.....trying to count stitches retrospectively is no joy. I am doing this one in an antique thread in size 40.
