Mug Shots at Drouin South

Here's a very proud Marg (and rightly so), with "Josh's Jungle", but made for Emerald! A lovely surprise for a very lucky girl!
Now for the mug shots - and you thought they were going to be faces with numbers under them, didn't you?!!
But no, they are actual mug shots!!!
The girls from my quilting group are very environmentally conscious - we all take a dilly bag to our quilting days, with mug, plate, cutlery (sometimes even a wine glass) - all those important things for the serious consumption of tea, coffee, cake, dinner, etc!!!!! We all look after our own dishes, so there is a fair distribution of the work - it's not left to one or two to do the washing up!
Last week all the ladies, another very environmentally conscious group, at Drouin South brought their own mugs, and here they are!
