Getting ready for my shower show
I was going to wow you all by having that red skirt done today, since it's so damned close, but alas, I cast off and tried it on and it's still not long enough. But I did make a new shower curtain for our scary basement bathroom:
Yes, it's a leftover panel from an art piece. But hey, it's a nekkid picture of me in the shower, how cool is that?
Down the side of the shower stall there you can see that the bathroom used to be emergency orange, before someone painted it mint green. I would have preferred the orange.
I had to get rid of the old shower curtain because we are billeting a couple of out of town artists this week for the Media City film festival, and the old one was too yucky for houseguests to see. The only time this house ever gets cleaned is when people are coming over (hey, I'm busy!). This is how lazy we are: the old shower curtain was Barbage, here when we bought the house a year and a half ago. It was way past time for it to go. But the new one was a cinch to make, and took about ten minutes if you don't count the month of cutting out the life sized lino block and printing it. It's got grommets, so the holes won't rip out like the Barbage kind.
Tara asked in the comments about the pattern for the red skirt: I made it up, but it's really easy. The bottom panel is crocheted sideways until it fits around your butt, then joined into a tube. Then you just pick up stitches around the top edge and knit, decreasing from the hips to the waist as much as you need to, then 2 x 2 ribbing at the top. I'll go look for the crochet pattern I used and try to post it tomorrow.
I love it. It'll be all superimposed body images when someone's in there showering. Crazy.

Ack, I'm not sure I ever want to go in your basment again. Not that I have a problem with a nekkid Jodi on the shower, it just adds an extra creppy factor to your basement. And before coffee I might think it was you and wait for you to be finished or scream and run away. Just kidding. I think it looks great. :) I can't wait until I can visit again, woo hoo.
