Description: How to catch fireflies: you need a fine cane basket and lots of luck, even then they'll escape! I recently read that if you go out with a small flash light, wait until you see a firefly flash - count one Mississippi two Mississippi - hold your flash light close to the ground, turn it on for one second. Almost immediately the firefly will turn and approach you. Continue with the flashing, and soon the firefly will land on your hand! This design belongs to the Synergy Challenge Collection: Synergy0001 (Firefly), and coordinates with other designs in the project. You may sell anything you produce using fabric purchased from the collection. Learn more about this project at The Synergy Challenge Project
Collection #1 uses the colors #DEDD00 (chartreuse), #023F67 (cobalt blue), black, and white, and relates to fireflies.

moirarae says: Thank you for the gorgeous comments Amy! The cane was done using fairly simple geometry ... once I'd figured out how to do it... it builds up from a very small block which looks deceptively simple. you can see the block in cropped image of one of individual canes. It's getting your head around the over and under's that does the trick! As for the palette I hold my hands up and admit that I did not choose them - they are one of the Synergy group challenges - see the links...

moirarae says: Thank you all for the lovely comments... Pamela: Yes, more medallions with that firefly glow... they were my starting point, I just need to get an interesting repeat out of them! Marian: Wow! Thank you! Lisa: Love the idea of a long skirt maybe a wrap over... how about a sarong?!

glimmer...

glimmericks says: I like this one a lot! Especially like the pulsing glow in the medallions. Would like to see one based on the medallions themselves so we have a few more that evoke the insects themselves in addition to all the coordinates.
