WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Hey WIPpersnappers. I'm getting my WIP post in under the wire this time. I've been working on a project that was for the traveling picstich blog hop which finished a few days ago. Deadlines are not my forte this week.

This is a photo of Apaneca, El Salvador (My hubs homeland). I used Anne's palette builder from  Play Crafts blog (aedesigned on flickr) to make a palette.
Apaneca, El Salvador

She came up with this beautiful bundle on her Fabric Friday post based on the colors in the palette and then I bought them (I made a few substitutions so I could purchase them all from one place).

Please don't drool on your computer.

Then I started some EPP diamonds. Baste on a plane! (and in a hotel!). EPP is great for traveling. I am a EPP convert. Plus, I got to use a little needle envelope my friend made for me.

The diamond are becoming stars. This will turn into a very large pillow.

Happy Wedneday (almost Thursday) which means it is almost the weekend and then almost vacation time in a few weeks woohoo! Check out all the other WIPs here.


  1. Wow wow wow!! That's so awesome! :D I can't wait to see this when it's done! :D

  2. I love all your fabrics. The stars look great. I have put a link for the palette maker on my side bar. Great tool.

  3. I love those stars. You are so patient to hand piece those. I am so scared to venture into that realm. Those colors are perfect too! It will look great.

    P.S. I so agree with you on the count down to the weekend and to vacation. I am so ready for the break. Enjoy yours!

  4. Your table full of basted diamonds, coffee, and needle & thread looks SO appealing to me right now! The holiday crazies have got me and I can't wait to get back to "real" sewing work. Love how your stars are coming, this'll be a lovely pillow.

  5. What a great pep project! I'm sure the final pillow will be lovely.
