Necessary Evil Chores: Untangling Thread

You know all those little chores around the house that are necessary, but also time-consuming and messy? I’m thinking of the kind of things that you try to avoid, even as you know you have to get them done sometime, like cleaning out drains. Puppeteers have those kinds of chores too, but they can occasionally take on a slightly macabre tone, like ‘sort eyeballs by size’ or ‘take apart moving hands’.

Keeping an artistic space neat is always a challenge, so in an attempt to motivate myself, I’m going to occasionally post here about a necessary evil chore. Then, hopefully, I will manage to actually accomplish said chore. Todays chore is untangling thread. Doesn’t it look nice and neat, all lined up in the box and bobbin case?

Thread, all tangled and mixed up.

Thread, all nice and neat!
