De-tangling

This is how I keep my threads.

I know, so organised!

I’m doing a bit of a spring (summer?!) clean in my little sewing room at the mo, and thought I might buy a fancy spool holder to pop all my cotton reels on & have them all neat & tidy.

Long story short, I didn’t buy one, I made one instead. Easy peasy! I just used a long piece of wood and some long nails.

I used a reel of thread to make sure I spaced the nails out enough. My little helper was itching to do the hammering for me!

Ok, it’s not a thing of great beauty, but I can see all the colours I have at a glance and… tangled threads? What tangled threads?  Here it is in situ.  In the dark, sorry!
