Not a lot of tatting, but some

I am still working on widening out the thinner end 
of the tablecloth to make the whole thing the same 
width and then continue.
Currently I am creating the open circle holes on 
each side.  It takes 2 motifs to create each one as 
the sides are now.  I don't have much to go to have 
both of the thinner sides equal again.  I tat 2-4 
motifs almost each night.
 Below you can see that when I finish getting these 
rows finished I will have 2 more rows on each side 
to have the whole thing the same width, and then, 
tons more work to get about another 2 feet on each 
side(just guessing).  ;)
 Today I finally put in some effort to making the chain 
for the pink shell necklace.  This might take some time, 
but I like the uniqueness of how it's turning out.
 Here's a closer-up view of the chain itself.
Well, that's the update for today.
Have a fabulous tatting rest of the week!! :)

Thank you both very much!!! :)
Madtatter80, yes, I bought a large ball of Aunt Lydia's white(it's cheap, but ok for this). I would prefer to use Lizbeth, but I couldn't afford it.

You're making steady progress, good for you! Love that chain. I saw a beaded chain on Pinterest, similar to this, that I mean to try one day.
