Finished the Anne Orr doily

I finished the Anne Orr doily I started several weeks ago. In fact, I finished it before I started playing with Jess's threads, but it needed some pressing before I took pictures. So while I'm playing with more of Jess's threads, I'll try to get a few photos of recent projects posted.
I think it could benefit from a bit of blocking. The outer round looks slightly out of shape. I confess it got tossed about a bit before I got around to taking the picture. The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, Sea Green Dark.

p.s. I made the same mistake yesterday on tat-ology! Anne Orr has an “e” on the end of Anne!

I really like the look of this doily - reminds me of a Celtic design. It appears that you had to do individual motifs in the center, as I don't detect split rings. It looks perfectly shaped to me!

Thanks for all the kind comments. Fox, I'm so glad you spotted the misspelling of Anne's name. I edited the post and label to reflect the correct spelling. Actually, Kathy, I did three of the motifs in a row using split rings and then added the remaining two motifs, climbing out of the last one into the first ring of the next round. I really dislike dealing with any more beginnings and endings than absolutely necessary.

Thanks for the reply! I'm impressed how the split rings are not detectable at all. It's great that they eliminate the extra ends.
