Crewel Sunflowers

I was searching and shopping on Etsy (as I am wont to do), and I came across this gorgeous crewel stitchery picture for sale by seller "BubblyCreek":
I recognized it, because I had just seen an advertisement for the very same item on the back of one of my vintage magazines!
"An exclusive offer for Woman's Day Readers".
I think it is beautiful and fabulous:
 Such a lovely design, based on one of Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflower paintings.
 It doesn't say who designed the stitchery piece, but they certainly did a wonderful job with it!
Wonder how long it takes to complete a "masterpiece" like that?

Is this from the seventies? That is when I did most of my embroidery kits. Never did such a big one though! It looks like it is in very good condition. Love T
