Building a new home - Paper Wasp (Ropalidia) Vespidae

This wasp was building a new home on the wall outside. Unfortunately it is in the shade of a tree and so I had to use a flash (built-in one) so the pics are not too good. (See, I post awful pics too!! LOL!!)For some reason it started it in the middle of insect eggs which are there, now I do not know if this was to ensure that any eggs she laid would have food when they hatched or if it was by accident.
