|Have you ever taken a ride in a hot air balloon? I did once when I was young, but then the very next to ride after me had the ride of their lives as the balloon broke loose and took them miles away. Of course, the pilot was experienced and no one was ever in any danger. All was recovered, but needless to say, the fun was over for the day. Hot air balloons have always been a symbol of adventure. Why not use hot air balloons for the adventurous person in your life? Use them on a gift, to decorate for a party, or whatever else you can think of. This applique works up very quickly and is a lot of fun!
