Only when it's dark

Not long after I joined the embroidery club in Aleppo (Syria), I came across this pattern online, I thought 'oh I wish there were threads that can glow in the dark' but I still saved the pattern because I like what it says. Not long after that on DMC website I read about Light Effects threads but not sure where can I get them. I was so happy when a friend took me to a cross stitch shop they stocked up on the threads and navy blue aida!

I still keep it as it is, I think I need to find a suitable frame to make this simple project stands out :)


Design by Jackie Harries (from Annie's Attic)
Navy Blue 14ct Aida
Stitch Count: 243 wide x 27 high
Threads: DMC Light Effects (Glow in the Dark and Precious Metal)
Material bought and stitched in Amman, stitched in one day 23rd April 2012

Very simple yet it has deep meaning, and literally glow in the dark too, thanks to DMC light effects thread :-)

***** many thanks, terima kasih, sağol, شُكْرًا


  1. What a pretty sentiment! I'm glad you were able to find the thread & linen you wanted to use for it : )

  2. Do you know where I can find this pattern? I made this years ago for a friend and wanted to make another one. I have been searching for so long when I came across your blog! Thanks in advance for any help! :-)

    1. Hello Crystal sorry it took me so long to read and reply you. I have forgotten the name of the web but I still have the pattern on my computer. So if you can give me your email I can send it for you.
