Truly inspirational story about Jean Baggott, who thought her life was kinda ordinary, until she began her 70 yr life history in embroidery!
Dets about the embroidery itself:
Took sixteen months to sew and contains 36,992 stitches, sewn on 32-count evenweave linen. It was designed to fit over a table in Jean’s living room and measures 112 x 41cm.
The tapestry tells the moving story of an ordinary young girl from the Black Country, growing up in extraordinary times.
I'm glad I finally decided to watch this video.
Check out the whole tapestry in high res.
