UK woman on 11-year mission to reproduce Bayeux Tapestry

WISBECH, United Kingdom (AFP) – Curled up on her sofa in the east of England, former teacher Mia Hansson carefully adds another stitch to her life-size reproduction of the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry.

Swedish-born Hansson began the project in 2016, working for several hours a day to reproduce the epic 70-metre embroidery of William the Conqueror’s invasion of England.

“I had nothing to do and I was really, really bored so I thought I needed a project that I can’t finish in a hurry, and what’s bigger than the Bayeux Tapestry?” Hansson, 47, told AFP at her home in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.
