Hot Air Balloon - Hammy's work in 2009.

This pattern is part of a larger pattern from Cross Stitch Gold #66 by Anchor.
The Hot air balloon part is about 60x90 stitches and used 6 colors forthe balloon and another 5 for the lower part (basket) andbackstitching. I made it on plastic canvas, which was a bit hardchoice, because the Anchor backstitches tend to be tricky (and use notonly the gridpoints but any part of the fabric). I think I managed toemulate the backstitch using only the plastic canvas holes. It is madewith Anchor floss and took a month to complete.
