The leaves have all unfurled around here now and our house renovation is finally underway.
***note: this is going to be a very photo-heavy post so please be patient if it takes a while to load***
Before I show you the progress on the reno, here are the mice I've been working on:
a white pair,
one that ended up a wee bit wonky (I'm not sure why),
an albino mouse (requested by Ian),
two heathered mice, one grey and one beige,
two dark mice (I'm not so fond of this colourway - it's hard to see their eyes),
and three zombie mice (chartreuse with red eyes),
And now for the reno... snaps from yesterday:
here's the original house from the back - can you see I'm trying to choose a paint colour. I'm partial to one of the bright greens - maybe with red trim . Zombie House! (The contractor is trying to talk me out of it):

the interior of the sunroom, north wall:
First thing this morning workman appeared ready to get cracking. We did a quick hello, then I went to walk Gus. Twenty minutes later almost all the windows were gone, as well as a good chunk of panelling.
The dogs had fantastic ring-side seats.
They work incredibly effieciently. This would take me years to accomplish...
By lunchtime there was no roof at all...
and by half-past three, the sunroom was no more.
