♥ Be True in Heart ♥

That's what this charming, sampler says...no I didn't make it but ordered it from ebay for only $6.00 and free shipping:) Such a nice lady too and her ebay id is Sandiscraps if you want to take a peek. I think she did a great job on the sampler and the frame, I know you probably wonder why I'd buy something I could make but when I found it I just had to have it and I really can't do the small stitching anymore, just can't see to do it although I am thinking of trying again. Usually all my frames are painted black but I think I'll leave this one alone it makes a nice accent piece and it's really not that red just from the light. Here is a closer look...it's done in a dark red and black:)
I finally found the new Country Sampler not at Walmart, still didn't have them in, but at JoAnn's, I really didn't think they would have it either but went in to get a skein of DMC 221, I still have to finish the little bunny I have started. I was surprised and thrilled to finally see it and have one in my hands:) I was good all the way home and didn't take a peek at it in the car actually I didn't get a chance to look until today what with the super bowl party and wonderful game, that is the first time that has ever happened to me.lol

I loved this picture of Linda's kitchen, loved it all BTW, and I'm thinking on taking the doors off of my cabinet and doing something like hers:) Will see if that happens, I know it won't be tomorrow because I'll have Samantha but maybe Wednesday!
Hey, maybe that's what I'll be working on!
Have a wonderful, cozy evening...more snow is coming our way actually I welcome it to make at least looking outside pretty again. Right now it's just patches of snow and ice..


  1. Rondell,
    What a darling little sampler & you can't beat the price with shipping included. Congrats to your Steelers.


  2. That's a cute stitchery! Sometimes it's just fun to buy from someone else even if you know you can do it yourself! I like the red frame, by the way!

    I have looked and looked at both Linda and Earlene's homes! I love them both and everytime I sit down to eat or snack, I have my magazine next to me. It seems like I see something new everytime I look!


  3. What a cute sampler and I love the red frame. As goes for the kitchen cupboards... I have been wanting to do something with mine, but I think I would have to leave my doors on because of the mess behind them (lol). Can't wait to see pictures if that is what you decide on.


  4. Wasn't that a wonderful game last night! I was thinking of you while I was watching it!
    I don't blame you for picking up that sampler...that is a great bargain!
    I can't wait to see the new CS...I think that I am the only one who has yet to see it! UGH! Why is my mail so slow!!!???

  5. That is a really cute sampler! $6 and free shipping, great deal!

  6. The sampler is so cute. I'm with Lisa -- if I took off the cabinet doors, a mess of JUNK would fall on my head.I do love the look,tho!

  7. That is sooo cute !
    I loved seeing Lindas house too, I could hardly stand the wait!

  8. Hi Rondell!....love your Be True In Heart Sampler! Valentine's Day is so much for to decorate for! Janet :)

  9. Hey Rondell, I finally got my copy of CS today at Walmart..Joanns here doesn't have it.can't wait to go to bed and enjoy it tonight...have a wonderful week!..
    Gina ;)

  10. Hello Rondell- I probably will not be able to see you at the salon. My accountant app. is at 1.00 in Caste Village so I will have to be gone by 12.30. Bummer. If I get done early I will try and stop. Are you getting color or just a haircut? I wanted to show you were my friends shop is on Regis Avenue-Treasure in Thyme. I think you would like it and it is only a few minutes from Renee's.

  11. Hi Rondell,
    The stitchery you got from eBay is very cute. Love the red frame.
    I have one set of cabinets that don't have doors...I keep cookbooks and some decorative items on them.

  12. Hi ROndell,
    Love your little sampler!
    Great price too...
    I like the red frame :)

    Have a wonderful day.


  13. Very cute sampler.

    I'm so happy to hear your found your Country Sampler magazine :) Yay!

    Have a great day!


  14. Your display with the stitchery is so cute. Did you make the game board? Hope you have nice day. Julie

  15. Your stitchery is cute and its always a compliment to have someone purchase your work. All framed and ready to go.

  16. What a sweet little sampler! I love it!

    Our Walmart no longer carries embroidery floss. I hate that! I have to travel 20 miles to buy it now!

    I have looked at Lind's home over and over. I never tire of looking!

  17. I wish I knew more about stitchery, that is so cute! I hope my Walmart gets the new Country Sampler in soon, I can't wait to see Linda's house!

  18. Hi Rondell,
    The little stitchery is adorable. I've never done cross stitch before... it looks hard trying to keep it all lined up and perfect.
    It is darling and I would buy one too! :)
    So glad you finally got yourself a copy of CS. I enjoy looking through them over and over again.
    Have a great day today! Blessings~ Birgit

  19. Such a cute little sampler and at a good price too. what a bargain. I have the Sampler magazine and laid it down now I can't find it. I really want to finish reading about Linda's home but I will have to hunt for it. WAH!

  20. Hey Rondell! That is an adorable little samper! I even like the red frame. So perfect for Valentines Day coming up.
    Also glad you finally for yourself a Country Sampler. My guess is that one of these days, we will be seeing at your home in there too!
    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  21. Morning girl...I love samplers! I also just found the new Country Sampler Magazine!!! lol I have been looking for it for weeks and I finally found it in the grocery store...I told Linda I have drooled over it's pages many many times!!! lol lol Thanks for coming by girl...hope you have a super week!

  22. Love the sampler. I still haven't found CS. The 2 places I did find it at still had September and January issues. What?

    Have a great day, Denise

  23. Rondell~Love your pics, your home is beautiful. I have a laptop so I take it from work to the house and usually e-mail and now blog(lol) in front of the TV. I am so glad I found your site.

  24. Yes, that is such a cute sampler. I love the minis ~ they add such a nice little touch to every little corner.

    I laughed when I read your comment about the cabinets. Every time I'm in the kitchen now, I think about taking off a couple of doors.
