Caroline Zoob embroidery kit No 7: The Christmas Rocking Horse (USA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA)


I have always loved rocking horses, ever since my darling father made a very simple one for me when I was five. A favourite childhood book was The Children of Green Knowe, by Lucy Boston, from which the following quote inspired my new Christmas kit:

‘At one side there was a beautiful old rocking horse – not a “safety” rocking horse hanging on iron swings from the centre shaft, but a horse whose legs were stretched to full gallop, fixed to long rockers so that it could, if you rode it violently, both rear and kick.’

A friend has a collection of Christmas pictures and cushions which she brings out, along with her decorations, each December. I also thought this would make a lovely present to welcome a child to its first Christmas celebration.

Hand-printed on a generously sized piece of antique linen, the design measures just under 14cm square and so would fit will in an A5 frame.

The price includes postage by Royal Mail International and packing to all areas listed. Postage is not tracked but you can purchase tracking and this is recommended for larger orders. Items are rarely lost in the post but tracking can expedite things, and post at the moment to Australia takes around 3 weeks and to the US a little less.
