QSDS Day 1: Rosalie Dace’s Dizzy Circles class


Large class but Rosalie is amazing at ensuring everyone gets individual encouragement. Initially we were to just pin up some potential colour combinations & ideas. Then the fun stuff started: what would happen if I added a sheer/cut out this section & showcased the fabric underneath/if I drew interest away from the centre & out toward the far left or right edge? What if I changed the colour of this piece/added something completely unexpected?😎 I’m all about the unexpected!

I left my machine in the car because I didn’t really think I would use it in this class. That simple decision opened up the way to handwork & a slower pace of work. Normally, I work quickly & intuitively but this time I’ve slowed down & begun to examine the process a bit more.

Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t want my machine. My plan is to get it sometime later on Sunday so I can maybe finish the one piece that I’ve come to really like. For now, here are some pictures of the initial auditions. We’ll see what happens!
