Black and White Fall: Blackbird Hoop Art

Yes, I admit it's a touch (maybe even more than a touch) early to be thinking about Fall.  But I can't help but be excited for one of my most favorites times of year.

Do you ever get a particular vision for a season when thinking of your decor?  This year, when I picture my "Fall lineup," I think of black and white.  Yesterday, I decided to get the ball rolling with this creation:

Simple, crisp, even stark.  I love the contrasts. 

The texture of the fabric is great as well, and I love the frayed-edge look.  The beautiful old metal emboidery hoop was in a craft stash given to me by my husband's grandmother.

The blackbird is made of an old woven wallpaper sample.  I traced the silhouette from a pretty crow image from The Graphics Fairy.

Believe it or not, Fall is on its way!
