One summer night, shortly before my daughter was born, I went outside to check the mail. As I turned around to waddle back inside I caught sight of the tree above me - simply filled with fireflies. There were so many of them that the entire tree glowed. I've never seen anything like it before or since. I'd almost think it was a dream, but my husband confirms that it was real. I called him outside and we stood there in the heat and humidity and watched the tree glow - me leaning on him to take the pressure off my back, and both of us talking in whispers the entire time, as if talking in regular voices would break the spell.

My daughter is nine now, and still believes wholeheartedly in fairies. I've told her the story and she says there must have been fairies there for sure. I stitched this up for her, using glow-in-the-dark thread to make the whole tree glow. You can, of course, stitch it up in regular thread - but the glow in the dark stuff is magical. :-) It would also be lovely to stitch up a series of the same tree in different colors for the four seasons.

The finished tree fits perfectly in a 10 inch hoop.
