A selfie in the shower? How ordinary ...

Seriously - there's a call for entry from SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) challenging us to create an art quilt through the process of rethinking the known and ordinary. So where better than the shower ...on retreat? I got to thinking about the ordinariness of taking a shower (if you are a privileged western and probably white person) - the un-thought assumption that a tap turned means pressurised water will fall from the shower head  - I remain struck by the ordinariness of "taking a shower".  Door mats, drain and shower heads make for a rather interesting and not-so-ordinary fabric.

Yes SueDee - there isn't a texture or pattern or possibility where you aren't with me in some way - your generosity as a teacher and mentor is a gift always treasured. The bonus of spending the day together at Quilt Show ... just priceless! Roll on Friday ...
