raspberryrainbow I've just had a most wonderful evening out, a yummy dinner and a cocktail afterwards. I'm so grateful to have two beautiful friends in my life here in HK.
Tonight we chatted and laughed, I needed a night like this, right now.
Tonight I go to bed with my heart wrapped up in happiness, instead of the grief I've felt for the last few weeks.

raspberryrainbow Doctors orders, well orders from my osteopath. I'm resting on the couch under my me-made rainbow quilt (it's been cold in HK this week). I woke up yesterday with severe neck pain, the stress of the last few weeks has caught up with me. Time to listen to my body and slow down. 2w

raspberryrainbow Grief is a funny creature, isn't it? It has me thinking deeply about what is important to me, what will I fill my one precious life with and who will I fill my life with.
The grief over losing my Nana still hits me in waves. I have regrets that I didn't see more of her. Growing up living in a different state of Australia to her made it difficult. But as an adult, I could have visited her more often.
She was always crafty, she sewed, quilted and made teddy bears. She made beautiful cards. She was an amazing cook and loved to travel. We had so much in common (I wish I could cook like her!) Much of my own creativity came from her, I am sure. That gives me comfort, she will always be a part of me. This quilt that she made is stunning, full of her favourite colour, purple . I love you, Nana.

raspberryrainbow I won't be around IG much this week. Today my handmade goodies are at a Christmas Market here in HK. Right after the market I fly out to Sydney to be with my family and say goodbye to my beautiful Nana who passed away this week. My heart is heavy with sorrow at her unexpected passing (how lovely are these paper hearts my big girl has made?) 3w

raspberryrainbow This is Yen Chow Street Hawker Bazaar. It is a crazy shanty town of fabric in #SSP (Sham Shui Po). It is seriously crazy fun exploring, just watch your step, the floor is not very even. #ilovehk 4w

raspberryrainbow We made cute christmas balls. They are polystyrene balls covered in fabric scraps. I may have had as much fun making mine as the kids did....... 4w

raspberryrainbow Do you wanna build a snowman? How cute is this, my 5 year old made her completely out of fabric and batting scraps and a cracker box (BBQ shapes, of course!). She was completely designed and made by my wee girl, I only helped to cut out the small fabric circles. #proudmummamoment 4w

raspberryrainbow I take choosing thread colour rather serious, it has to match. I like matchy matchy. 1mon
