New addition to the neighborhood and BBD contest entry

Good Evening!!
I went for a walk/run yesterday morning between rain showers. And this is what I discovered. The owner let mother and baby for a few hours while it was nice.


Then mother noticed me and it was time for me to leave.
This is my version of the Blackbird Design contest.
I stitched in on 28 ct cream fabric with Needle Necessities
#127. I used my paternal Grandmothers first and middle name with her dates.
I have included a lady bug (from my window) on the piece for good luck to win.
I have many e-mails and blogs to catch up on tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting with me. Until next time...

Great choice of floss and fabbie. Love your progress on Princess Parade, such a cute design, I have been looking at it on some ONS's sites, and so far have resisted completing the purchase, how is that for will-power!!! Your other wips are looking great. The model you used to show off your beenie, adorable.

Thanks so much for your kind comments on the rug!
It looks like you live in such a lovely country area. Where I am used to be all farms when I was growing up, but now it is a teeming suburb with all the unpleasantness that goes with it!
Ahh life by the offramp!

Oh, that is so nice! I like your ladybug good luck charm -- and your bird motif is excellent : )

I still may sew on a plain button to my sampler -- just haven't found the right one (yet)
