We finished the clay wall and fireplace re-installation. Before it was painted cinder blocks, now it has natural American Clay applied on it. The fireplace had a gold trim, which Jesper spray painted matte black. The electric source to the fireplace now goes through the wall to the power instead of on the outside on the floor. Project complete!

I finally have gotten some more photos together of what I've made. While on vacation, I worked on some baby socks. Actually three of the pairs pictures I've had for a few years stashed away. I have one more single done and need to make the second one as soon as I can find the other skein of yarn.

I also knit up this cute little dress in a weekend, it was surprisingly fast! It's Topaz, from I used Manos yarn. I have plenty of green left, so back in the stash it goes.
All these projects are stash busting, no new yarn purchases necessary!

I've been feeling quite good for my pregnancy, but in the last 2 weeks, I'm really obviously showing a pregnant belly. Luckily, many of my old clothes fit still and so I am not feeling low on wardrobe yet.

I'm enjoying riding my Vespa to work so much more now that the weather is great. I really toughed it out all winter in the cold weather and now it's a treat. Less gear to pile on too, so it's quicker to get going. I'll probably ride through the end of July, and yes! I'm being careful!

I'm looking forward to our sailing vacation to the San Juan Islands in early July, it's fun to plan the meals and the route plan. Hopefully it will be sunny too.

Jesper has been full-on building a greenhouse atop our garden. It's looking good and sturdy and might just be all done by the weekend. We'll see how it goes as far as increasing plant happiness. Our water bill will go up, but I think it takes quite a lot of water to really affect that. We're going to establish a strawberry patch.
