Portuguese Embroidery



This past week I've been working on this very special embroidery for a final project. Somehow, I managed to get an embroidery to count as my final project for my Intro to Literary Analysis class. This in itself is a miracle; a little bit of sunshine in the midst of cramming for Finals. 


I had to analyze a book, and trace any cultural aspect of the novel and map the results, a textual cartography. I decided to trace how the author uses birds to represent humans throughout this Portuguese novel. I am Portuguese and love Portuguese style embroidery. So, I used the apron from this post as inspiration for my embroidery. 



I know this photo is poor quality but, I did take it in my dorm room at night. When I get home in a few weeks I'm going to make it into a pillow! I just wanted to share with everyone what I've been working on as of late.
