I've been a bit afraid of posting my final high school work - a sculpture made of wool and a few synthetic yarns - mainly because I'm so proud of it I don't want to sound cocky, but here it goes. The detailing, as you can see, is enormous; needless to say it took me one month to finish it, working non-stop from beginning to end (I even spent the night in school and lost track of all the times I had dinner in the cafeteria). For my surprise it was more than worth it, ending with a diploma for my maximum score at it. As for the sculpture, everything was handmade by me, honoring Portugal's traditions and therefore criticizing its lost due to our extremely industrialized world.
The reason why I'm posting this precious "little" thing today is because this blog started one year ago and has now reached 100 posts - not bad for a little hobby of mine. Hope you guys keep supporting what I do, like you have so far, and thank you for putting up with me for so long. More anniversaries to come!
