This is Barnwood Buttons by Rosewood Manor. Although there are lots of things I don't like about this piece, I do love the fact that I was able to use up some silk I already had on hand. I also love that I was able to incorporate some antique buttons that I've inherited into this piece.
You can see some of the detail on the buttons here.

I also have a hardanger class finish from the month. It's the third hardanger class I've done and I'm really enjoying it. This piece is 1/4 that will be done over the year 2013 and framed together.
