I remember saying on this blog in the dizzy mists of time, that Life 5 should be finished by the end of October. Silly me. Life, if you'll pardon the pun, has got in the way, and there's a vast amount of stitching on this one.
Footnote: A couple of weeks ago I had an anonymous comment about Life 4 - Hello Dear, What Did You Do Today? telling me that really I should quote my sources when giving statistics, name the books etc. The writer had obviously completely missed the point! Perhaps he/she thought I was writing an academic essay of some kind, rather than making a piece of art. So, just in case, (!) all these quilts are in a series of 10/12 and are called "Life Stories" and have detailed text on them. The text is not an explanation, it's a story about the person depicted. You don't have to read the text to understand the picture, it just adds another layer and is something the viewer can investigate if they wish. I've done a great deal of research on them before stitching, but they're not intended as educational in any way.
