I'm getting closer. So glad to be done with the balloons.

Instead of cutting all the pieces for the bears, I cut them as one piece and will zigzag the separation lines.

Would you zigzag the balloons with all one color as the top thread or change the top thread according to the color?

Yes, I know, I goofed on this one.

Adorable, great job, how about clear mono thread, or you could satin stitch in the yellow & make it part of the design element. Either way would look great.

Oh, I love that! I'd just use 1 color to appliquge it. The mono would be good if you're not giving it to a baby.

Wonderful design & balloons. Looks like it was a lot of work. I am a hot air balloon freak. Lived in Albuquerque NM for 5 years and saw them all the tome.

It's going to be a real beauty when it's finished.
