I have never outgrown being in awe of how beautiful fireflies are. They can make you believe in magic again. Sadly I don't have any in the desert I live in, so when I created this for the weekly contest it took me back to my childhood of chasing the little glow-bugs around in the dark woods of Georgia. I didn't live in Georgia all my childhood, I was moved from place to place by my parents, but Georgia made a magical impression on my eight year old mind in a big way.
I put my heart into this piece; it would mean the world to me if you'd vote for me in the contest, please :) I drew this by hand with colored pencils and then used the computer to add the glowing elements.
At my house this print (in the fat quarter size) will become a pillow sham for sleepy summer nights, but it would make a great bag for camp-outs and sleep-overs too. You could put it in an embroidery hoop and hang it on the wall, maybe even with twinkling LED lights in the back for a magical nightlight or whimsical art piece.
I'd love to hear what neat project you have used my pattern in, please comment if you get a chance! I hope you like it!
