Holly Hartman has written a lovely short informative piece about the Year of the Horse and how the Chinese celebrate here. I urge you to go and read it, it will only take a few minutes.
Both Von and Chrissie chose to go with the 'horse' in their samples and Chrissie has made the most delightful scroll in true Chinese colours
Now what will you do? It would be lovely if you went to some town or city where they are celebrating and it would be great if you could include a horse in your design but if you can't not to worry - anything Chinese will do.
