Lady Bug Picnic

Some time ago i had the privilege of quilting bugs into Linda's quilt.  Linda lives in the Sacramento area and recently joined the local quilt guild. 
A couple months ago i received a call from Linda letting me know she had decided to enter her quilt into the Guild's quilt show.  She'd never entered a quilt in a show before and neither had i.  Honestly i'd forgotten all about it until Linda called last week.  We won a 3rd place ribbon in the Two Person Pieced Quilt category!  I was shocked...and so was Linda!  What a fantastic surprise for both of us!! 
A day or two later, i'm scrolling through my 
blogroll and notice the words...
"River City Quilt Show".  How odd i thought...and immediately clicked on the curious words. 
Lady Bug Picnic!
Life is often curious and unsuspecting....
My first ribbon!  Linda's first ribbon! 
We're both flabbergasted! 
Can you find all the bugs, bees, butterfly
 and even a worm?  All on their way to the picnic.
