anybody ready for spring?

Whew!  This is how much I have been in my shop lately.  That is Rob hanging with me, getting all "comfortable" with my sandblasting cabinet as a backrest.  He normally avoids my shop but till I get a few things sewn up, this is how we do it.
 All right, these are just phone photos and I ask you to look past gaping ungrouted crevices, and bare cement board but almost all of the hard parts are done.  I have a bee that is about two firings away from a decision of whether he will make the cut.  The poof part of this mosaic took WAY longer than expected... then that yellow flower, come ON!  I am still pushing to have the rest tiled by Sunday.  Then I start another school residency Monday and I can hopefully grout this sucker next weekend.  Regardless, all good.  BTW, when I said I was in my shop all the time, I was sayin' that like it's a good thing, cause it is.  Lovin' this life.
