Marg's doll, some beautiful stitchery there!
We, the Gisborne Girls as we seem to have become known, decided to have a joke with Shez, she has a great sense of humour luckily and we presented her with a book on Mug Rugs (how to make) and we each made her a mug rug from the book. Now we know Shez is NOT a fan of mug rugs...but we had a really good laugh and Shez (after the initial shock) had a really good laugh. Now she has more items for her present box!!
Mug rugs on display!!
