sneak peek: shine bright like {a birthstone}...

Someone's birthday is around the corner, so I've been working away on a little something to celebrate...

The first of many amethysts to spoil the birthday girl.  Now if only I could actually get this done in the month of February ;)

Edited to add:  This is a paper-pieced pattern that I've had in the back of my mind for quite some time now.  After finally coming up with a layout that was (1) less intimidating than a flawlessly faceted princess cut yet (2) still abstractly identifiable (I hope?) as a gemstone (albeit an imperfect one!), I decided to put the pattern to the test with a stack of eight purple solids ranging from lavender to eggplant.  One down, eleven to go ;)

Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced {for the first time!}
