[Self] Censorship

Self portrait

This week blogger Sharon Mann’s post of masked women reminded me that I wanted to make a fiber piece on this same theme. The idea of self-censorship pokes into my brain from time to time. When does one decide to speak no more? Am I adding to the rattling noise of empty voices flooding the air? Am I speaking just one sentence too long? Is anyone listening? Or are we all talking to and about ourselves?

Then there is another take on the phrase: It could be : Say, “No More!” It’s time to demand that indifference and injustice cease.

Later…. I shared this fiber object with my friend Kathy. She allowed her photo to be taken wearing the mask.

She also had some good suggestions on how to make this mask into one that could actually be used by people who need to wear them for health reasons.


One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.

  1. Thanks for posting Laura Kate, powerful words, I’m in the agreement with “Say, , “No More!” It’s time to demand that indifference and injustice cease.” Art in any form is needed now more than ever to help transcend us. Thanks for linking my blog!
