Tear of Joy Ornament on eBay UPDATED

The Tear of Joy Ornament chart has turned up on eBay.  The listing is a little vague but it looks like the instructions and some thread and beading needles are included.  The posting shows what looks like a beaded canvas but it is not clear if that finished piece on Loretta's original canvas (it has her LS logo) is included.  This sale starts at $12.99 with "free standard shipping."

UPDATE:  Tear of Joy's chart sold at the starting price above.  Someone got a nice deal!

Tear of Joy is one of the Christmas Heirlooms Collection ornaments and was published in Oct. 1993 under the Needle Adventures name.  Good luck to any bidders!
