You don't know how well you know something until...
No matter how well you think you know how to do something, I believe that you don't really know it well until you try to break it down to teach it to someone else.
When you try to put a process on paper, illustrate each step so that everyone can understand it, describe the process in words, photos and diagrams, then it becomes a part of you.
It was a good experience for me. A lot came out of it. The obvious thing is the new "Even Count Tubular Peyote Stitch Tutorial" that I now have posted on the sites where I offer my patterns. But during the process, I also learned how to compress photos with my publishing software, and which pdf publisher would give me the easiest pdf for other to download.
Oh, yes, and I even found some time for beading. Check out the new pieces that I have been working on.
