that the three pieces fit together perfectly!
Hmmmm... should I change my mind and piece them together as a table mat for my dining room table?
Well, I have agonized over this for several days now and simply can't make a decision. So, I am seeking your opinion. Should they be a separate wall hanging and pillows? Or should they be combined as a table mat?
To entice you and to let you know that I truly value your opinion, I'm having a mini giveaway. Simply post a comment here with your opinion. Or if you are not comfortable with that, you may send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with "My Opinion" in the subject line (so I know that they are not spam ;)
On Sunday, I will draw a name for a winner. In trying to think of a prize, I remembered that I had a few little pillows that I hadn't listed on Etsy yet. So the winner will have their choice of one of the following pillows:
(I have plans for another giveaway in the near future.)
Thanks for your help! I truly value your opinion!
"May you run and not be weary. May your heart be filled with song. And may the love of God continue to give you hope and keep you strong. And may you run and not be weary. May your life be filled with joy! And may the road you travel, always lead you home."

"You say it's your birthday
It's my birthday too, yeah
They say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you. "
Yes, it is my birthday. And guess who sang this song to me earlier this week?
Sir Paul McCartney himself!
O.k., I guess that he sang it to about 40,000 other people at the same time... But I didn't mind :)
I was so lucky to get tickets for my birthday and my youngest son (a big Beatles fan) and I went to the concert together! WOW! What a concert! He played for 3 hours straight without a break or even a drink of water in 90+ degree heat! I don't know which I liked better ~ the Beatles music or the Wings music? "Live & Let Die" really blew me away!
From watching him on stage you would never guess that he is 69! His stamina and energy really kept the show flying by.
Yesterday it was back to Wrigley Field for another gift:
a Cubs WIN!
See the "W" flag on the left? That signifies a win and is what we always hope to see at the end of a game :)
Thanks for letting me share my fun and my finishes :)
"Shout to the Lord, all the earth, Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You."

Isn't this cross stitch design pattern lovely? Betty Dekat of primitivebettys was kind enough to share this pattern. I had so much fun searching for the perfect coordinating fabrics and trim. I always think that August & Sunflowers go together like peas & carrots...
