Halberg Challenge

This is my "Halberg" Challenge. Myself and three nieces are involved with this challenge, all our maiden names were Halberg. The photo's are of my grandparents on my fathers side.
This challenge was my choice for this one I had been given the black frames quite some time ago and have wanted to use them on something special, I am pleased with my result.

Balloons and Hearts for CHRISTCHURCH

I have started making "HEARTS" for Christchurch, this evening I will spend my time stitching on embellishments. I can see there could be some inchies from the scraps from the hearts.

At 7pm FEILDING let balloons go in support of CHRISTCHURCH. Balloons were sold for a gold coin there were quite a few people that bought twice as their balloons escaped before 7pm.
