    It looks great. Did it affect your weight limit for luggage?

    Nice rocking horse. So you have more talent then just quilting.

    Your carpentry skills are great mammab. my niece has one like this but as she has chubby lil thighs, when she rode her "horsey" it was rubbing her thighs red and tender so I made her a "saddle". hers was 10 and 1/2 inches long in the saddle area and 4 inches wide. and almost 1 inch thick. so I made a pad with fabric, warm n natural with some anti skid gripper fabric (by Dritz) on the UNDERSIDE of the saddle, FACING, the wood. so it did not slide and she can get really rocking! it was held together with velcro and I made a little "pillow" for the bum area and sewed it down on all 4 corners. she loves it.

    You never stand taller than when you stoop to help a child.

    You are one awesome grandmother and greatly talented. Thanks for sharing with us. I too would be interested in hearing about the weight and customs situation.

    For those who wonder about customs, I didn't have any problems. In fact I had more issues with my camera bag. I was a little concerned too, more because I took the stain along in my checked bag. No problems. I did not have a weight problem, but I was not taking a lot of other heavy things (my daughter was already there with most necessary liquids). I think my bag only weighed about 41 lbs, but it was a very long and awkward duffle. I hope the kids like it, there Dad codes. Thanks for all the compliments.
