LOVE by Raymond Crawford (HO-207)

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

I finished writing the stitch guide LOVE by Raymond Crawford (HO-207) for a customer.

LOVE stitch guide by Robin King
Raymond Crawford • HO-207

I had so much fun selecting stitches and threads. Here's some beauty shots of the threads for each area.

Threads for L

Threads for O

Threads for V

Threads for E

Threads for Border and LOVE letters

Many of the stitches were inspired from June McKnight's new Colorful Backgrounds book.

Wonderful stitches in this little book from June McKnight.

Here is a stitch for you: Triple Windows.


Guess which Square and Thread had the Triple Window stitch, and I will give you a present from the prize closet. Get half the answer right? You'll still get a prize. Enter as many times as you like. Guess I'm feeling the love.

Just leave your answers in the Comment section. Those signing in as Anonymous, please give me a way to get in touch with you. Use the front cover of the guide to help you identify the Square location: i.e. E-3.

Anyone interested in this stitch guide for LOVE (HO-207) can contact me. Email me at creativecats@comcast.net.

Happy Mother's Day to all. Until the next time... Hugs, Robin

  1. I would use this stitch in the RED/Yellow/ Orange L area#1 of the design. I would use the threads to the left of the canvas and I would stitch red area as diagramed and turn the stitch 90 degrees for the yellow area.

    1. Hi sudukc,

      Nice to hear from you. What a great idea you had for the Triple Windows stitch. However, I had a different plan for the L-1 square. Enter again, if you have time. Thanks!

    3. Hi Nicolle. Thanks for coming back. E-2... sorry. I didn't use Triple Windows there, and I did not use the deep purple thread, either. Try again if you have the time.

    1. Hi Charlene,

      Thanks for visiting the blog. Unfortunately, I didn't use the Triple Windows in O-4 section. It would have looked nice, though. Please try again if you have time. There is a prize with someone's name on it. Thanks! Robin

  4. Hi, Robin. What pretty threads and colors! I'm guessing V-4 with the Splendor and Kreinik.

    1. Hi Whitney,
      Thanks for visiting the blog. Unfortunately, I didn't use the Triple Windows with either V-4 or with Splendor/Kreinik combo. Great ideas, though. Please visit again if you can. Thanks, Robin

  5. Hi, Robin. I'll take another shot. How about L-4 with Splendor.

    1. Hi Anonymous,
      Thanks for visiting the blog. I didn't use L-4 for the Triple Windows stitch. Also, I didn't use Splendor. But, please guess again. The prize closet is still full. Thanks, Robin
