Day 18: The Gray Wolf

So today I began my wolf!

What does that mean?

Let me explain! My final project is an embroidered emblem of a wolf, I have already completed my vaguely tattoo-esque pattern on the side and the golden moon dead center. Today, I began my wolf, the beautiful silver mass of animal that makes the piece special.

I had already unsuccessfully attempted numerous times to begin it before, however after a quick phone call with Ms. Li (the ultimate master) everything was cleared up.

I learned a new technique known as the Xie Cha Zhen which means 'slanted pierced needle' and is used especially for embroidering animals. 

Then, I had a enjoyable time with Harry and Chuli finding three new resources and met up with Service Learning teammates Erica and Orion and completed our short interview of knowledgable and wise Service Learning partner, Mr. Li.

Will keep you posted!

My name is Ryane and I am a fourteen year old student in SAS Puxi. My interest in Microcampus stemmed from a desire to participate in something outside of my sheltered metropolitan lifestyle where everything is done for me and I am painfully inexperienced. I have lived in Shanghai for eight years now but was born in Taipei, Taiwan to an English speaking family of six cousins and numerous relatives. I have left Xizhou and missing it most painfully, however, I am happy and excited for all future Microcampers and the amazing experience they will experience. Be good to T and Ms. Mai!
