raspberryrainbow Today, all these words in my head finally came together. I put them on my blog/website with some photos of the first two memory bowls I've made using my Grandmothers cut up clothes. #grief #loss #love #family www.raspberryrainbow.com 2d

raspberryrainbow When we were sorting out my Nana's things over the weekend, we found this. It is a #hexie single bed duvet cover. My Nana made it. It is at least 20 years old. I was thrilled to take it home, one of my girls will sleep under it - #handmade with love, many years ago, by their Great Nana. The thought of this fills my heart with so much happiness. Does anyone know the best, gentle way to clean/wash it? Some of the lighter fabrics have discoloured. 3d

raspberryrainbow My wee girl spotted these on our walk to kinder this morning. I am happy to be back home in HK after 4 days away in Australia. Thank you to my Shropshire boy for working for an airline and looking after our girls. I went to help my Auntie sort out my late Nana's things. It was a beautiful weekend, there was sadness and tears but there was also many happy memories and stories about my beautiful Nana. She really was a remarkable woman. 5d

raspberryrainbow It's the small things today that I'm grateful for, a new jar of Vegemite from a friend, it has my name on it, too cute (we have run out and the local shops have none at the moment). Plus home grown basil that smells amazing, grown on a friend's balcony here in HK. Thank you lovely ladies for sharing. #grateful 3w
  •   becsibbi I just bought a huge jar, Sib's really into it at the moment. Yum! 3w
  •   modernbasics It's getting harder and harder to buy here. 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow My girls are so into it at the moment too. @becsibbi 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow Yes, here in HK too. Often months go past and you won't see it in the stupid-markets. Plus it is crazy expensive, like 6x the price in Aus. @modernbasics 3w

raspberryrainbow It is such an amazing feeling finishing a quilt top, especially when I stopped enjoying making it a long time ago. It was all worthwhile to see my big girl (she is 9) hugging it. #loveher #apurplequiltformybiggirl 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow It has been 18 months in the planning @lorena_in_syd. She asks often when it will be finished. She now has to wait until August when we are in Aus next to pass it to the long LAQ. 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow Thanks @mals66 3w
  •   raspberryrainbow I'm so sorry I had to let you know @mybeardedpigeon. My heart sank as soon as I saw it was not yours. Did they alter it a little? Some people! 3w
  •   farahlin_ So beautiful and what a wonderful feeling to see your girl hugging it like that! I love the colour combination! 3w
  •   nui_nui_mishin What a beautiful 3w
  •   mybeardedpigeon They altered it a tiny bit but it's still a copyright breach. 3w

raspberryrainbow I made some ribbon thingys for the wee girls scooter (and the big girls new bike). They chose the colours. Today is crazy windy and they look great (if I do say so myself ). 4w
  •   _measuretwice Handlebar streamers are awesome, am always slightly tempted to add some to my road bike 4w
  •   raspberryrainbow Ahhhhhhh, handlebar streamers is a much better way to describe these @_measuretwice. I'd be tempted too if I had a bike or scooter. 3w

raspberryrainbow Last Thursday I treated myself to a morning at the beach, chatting to a lovely friend and playing with her daughter. It was bliss. Next time I probably should go with my own children (it was lovely having a break from being "mumma", I was just "me" for a morning). 4w
