quick letter art

When I switched out the frames in our dining room here I freed up some frames for use elsewhere.  Our gallery wall above the sofa in the living room is constantly shifting and growing.  I joke with my husband that one of these days I'm going to tap in a nail and the whole wall will crumble down because there are so many holes.

When we got back after the holidays I started fussing around the house.  Does anyone else do this before they even unpack their suitcase?  I am compelled to decorate after being away from the house for a week.  I know, a little strange.

So we shifted the gallery wall once again and I had a gap to fill.  So I took this fabric I have.

I used the burlap for the background.  Burlap, what?  More burlap!  The love affair is in full swing!  I drew a little lower case b on the chevron fabric and cut it out with scissors.   It isn't perfect but that is part of the charm.  I just put the b on top of the burlap and assembled the frame again.  No glue or anything. Here it is

That makes three letter b's on the gallery wall.  I'm not sure what my fascination with letters is but I can't get enough.
