Needleartist, Jean Baggot, tells the stories of her life in an amazingly detailed tapestry that includes 73 interlocking circles that each focus on one aspect of her life. More impressive, though, is her transformation of spirit and attitude as a result of her life experiences. That she’s translated them into needlework is fantastic enough, but the stitching project then inspired her to write her memories of some of the most historic moments of her lifetime from her viewpoint in a book called The Girl on the Wall. I was mesmerized by the short video above as I watched it on Pin Tangle, and highly recommend taking a few minutes to watch it and be inspired by Jean’s story. You can read more about her experiences, the tapestry and her book on her web site. [via Pin Tangle]
