February Wall Hanging

I finally had to take time to finish this project I made for my Mom.
She is in a care center and I made this for her door.
This is a pattern from Joined at the Hip called "Button Up."
You make a foundation to hang on the wall/door . . . 
. . . then, a separate panel buttons on this foundation: one for each month.
I chose 3 different buttons from my button box to complete the patchwork feel.
I actually started this project a few weeks ago, got the foundation done and the month of January slipped away from me.
Lots of Texture. 
The finished project. 
So, I had to put the January panel at the bottom of the pile . . . on to March!
