craft day with figgy and frannie!

"tweedle deedle dee.. tweedle deedle dee!"

Today has been a purrfect day! (at least to this point!)
Ive been wanting to do something with this
lamp shade for a long time.
Finally yesterday I bought some
fabric and last night I ripped the old shade apart to
get it ready for this morning!
Up at 5:30.. ready to play!
So were figgy and frannie. they love to hang out in my craft room with me. Though they usually are sort of in the way... I almost always work around them. I hate to make their sweet little selves move!
Arent they the sweetest little purrbabies!?
Frannie was posing here.. I did have to move her out from under there as I needed to be able to work on it!
So they moved over and napped while i worked.
this turned out so cute and cheerful and it just brightens up my craft room.. but it is very difficult to get a picture of!
such fun!!!
It has taken me all day to do this and then to upload pics and post on my blog. Its 4:00 now and I've done nothing else today (except feed my face!) So while its still day light out, I think I'll go outside and take the greens and lights off the house from christmas!! then when my husband comes home from where ever he has wandered off too I think I'll have him cook burgers on the grill. sounds good huh? more calories... just what I need... eiy yie yie!
Tomorrow... back to serious weight loss business!

It's good to take a day out, right?
And end it with burgers. That sounds so good!
