Friday night McWalker Yarns hosts a Sip and Stitch Zoom meeting. A great way to connect during the Pandemic. While we were knitting and chatting, we started talking Halloween. One of our participants lives in Australia, so our evening meeting is her morning coffee time. Gayle was saying it will already be Halloween for her at next Friday Night’s Sip and Stitch Zoom meeting. I thought, wait I will don the mask that is on my dining room table. I sewed this costume for my son Mark in the early 80s.
So here I am sporting the ET mask and Gayle in Australia photographed me and sent it. With her gracious permission I am sharing her photo of me.
I “met” Gayle through the Woolswap program she runs, as well as many other knitters around the world, sharing fiber, creativity and inspiration with one another.
It’s me. You can see my knitted shawl peeking.
This photograph was sent in the early morning by my DIL in Berlin.
For the blog!
Thank you, N,❤️!
I’ve had some excellent contributions from family members and friends, as my own travel has been restricted, during these Pandemic times.
On the University of Pittsburgh campus you can see this sculpture of Dr. Thomas E. Starzl, “father of organ transplantation”, seated on an iron memorial bench.
Someone added the mask! You can visit the sculpture on Pitt’s campus, by the Cathedral of Learning lawn.
Dr. Starzl’s bronze likeness was created by sculptor Susan Wagner and unveiled in June 2018 . The statue, sporting a mask during the COVID 19 Pandemic, was photographed by a friend of a friend and asks to remain anonymous.
Thanks for sharing this photo documenting our collective experience and reminding us of safety measures we can all practice.
“Wagner is best known locally for her three 12-foot-tall bronze statues of Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski at PNC Park and of the Gulf War Memorial at the 14th Quartermaster headquarters in Greensburg.” From article by Deb Eardley in TribLive
I’ve had a lot of good help with friends and family contributing to the blog during this Pandemic. I appreciate their sharing their images.
Some prefer to be anonymous and I respect their wishes. This early morning I received the photo AND the accompanying title. Thank you guest blogger. 😀
I’m back in the Burgh but here are a few more Southern images for the Textures Photo Challenge
One of my Photography Two students left me a little surprise on my iPhone (which I’d left unattended on my desk)
Uh-oh. Let that be a reminder to keep my phone away in the future. It’s usually in my top drawer.
Sharing it on the blog because I laughed out loud when I found this photograph in my photostream. It gave me pause.
I’ve a set of Victorian Masks – this one is Horatio Nelson 1st Viscount Nelson. It was on my desk, too.
My guess is
1.she saw the mask,
2. she saw my phone,
3. she felt inspired
4. and created this in a few short seconds.
5. Left it for me to find.
6. Never mentioned it.
(Way to go AZ!)
7. I blogged it!
