I made this for my colleague KK's baby daughter who was born in mid September. Not that they're Chinese, but I chose red (DMC 666) for good luck, and since it's the Year of the Horse, I thought a rocking horse would be apt. The pattern is from one of my favourite cross stitch book, Anne Sohier-Fournel and Sonia Lucano's Pictos, Logos & Autres Tags Au Point de Croix.
Spring is definitely here ~ aren't these yellow tulips gorgeous?! We've had lots of lorikeets visit the garden since I've been buying sunflower seeds by the bag full (and boy do they eat a lot!).
