So far my biggest challenge has been to illustrate and write the instructions for cubic right angle weave. It turned out to be the perfect stitch for a bracelet band to support these little bejeweled sliding components. I love the weight of it, and I love the act of stitching it. It may be the ultimate in meditativeness, developing one cube at a time.
But I can attest to the fact that illustrating it in two dimensions was no easy feat. I hope that I did the job effectively enough to communicate it to those wanting to try their hand at it. I may decide to do a video, we'll see, I haven't done that yet.
In the meantime I will be one of several featured designers in the Toho booth at Bead and Button. My time slot is Sunday June 10th I will there from ten to noon. I've been invited to demo whatever I would like, and I'm thinking cubic raw. It is one of those stitches which definitely benefits from being seen in person, so if you're curious and you're at the show, consider stopping by.
I'm fortunate that Mark made all of this years kits, and that Liz will be in the classroom to help and that I have lots of plans for seeing dear friends....but for right now, I have two more designs to finish for the book, before I can turn my full attention to Bead and Button preparedness.
