Here's a beautiful Hand-stitched Hot air balloon. I wish I could say that I did this stitching myself, but I found this little beauty at a local resale store called Austin Creative Reuse. I had to pick it up to make a card for a dear friend who just loves sewing and quilting. It was much bigger when I got it (the paper background), but I trimmed it down to fit on this card.
I hope she will love it. She's out of the hospital and now in rehab, so I go to visit her each day to see how she is doing. I am fortunate to be off this summer since the job I started works for the local school district.
