Advent Calendar

With barely more than 2 weeks until Christmas,
I finally have my advent calendar finished!
Inspired by the calendar in Merry&Bright, but I wanted something a bit more modern and not quite as huge (even though this one is quite large at 20"x45"!)
Each little date hangs from a button below, until you add it on the buttons on the tree.

I realized just how much I love a white on white stippling.
I have some little present buttons I wanted to add to the bottom along the tree, but my poor fingers can not jab through the quilted layers+ the wool appliques anymore..
Here it is hanging up next to our Christmas tree (hence the eerie red glow!)
