I stitched this kit while I was with the US Peace Corps in the Philippines from 1982-1984. It was a lifesaver (being homesick and far away from my loved ones), as well as a very enjoyable project.
It was originally going with me to a new home in Washington, DC, but Mom fell in love with it and immediately hung it in her apartment. I couldn't say no to her so I just bought a huge red bow and stuck it to the frame for Christmas. That was back in 1985 and she still has it.
I can't remember what company produced the kit though. I've been scouring eBay for the name of this kit's designer, but so far, no luck.
