We've had mid-winter Christmas, spending the afternoon at a Charm of Magpies, knitting or doing cross-stitch, followed by handmade Christmas ornament swapping and a lovely roast dinner...

The savoury food...
...and the sweet, with the most amazing pavlova made by MrsC
We also trekked up to Palmerston North to spend the day on the Crazy Gypsy's patch. The plan was to go to Levana in Levin, but they were closed, so we op-shopped locally, then had posh tea and cakes in Palmy and a little bit of spending in the Arthur Toye sale...

Than last week we celebrated Cake patterns by wearing a Cake pattern and eating lots of cake - you see I told you we know how to eat :-)
