Christmas Heirloom: Diagonal Heart Ornament

Published in February 1992 as part of the Christmas Heirloom series under the Needle Adventures name, this red diagonal heart ornament turned up on eBay this week.  Thanks to the kindness of the eBay seller, I have photos to share.  If anyone has stitched this or has a better photo of the cover photo, please let me know.

According to my informant, the heart is approximately 3 1/3 inches by 3 1/4 inches.
