Girl on the Wall: A Biography in Embroidered 73 interlocking circles!

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.
