My bobbins were running wild. They were living in a box in the drawer and at night, they must have been having dance parties. Every time I opened the drawer to pick out a new one, there were tangles of thread everywhere. Finally, a simple solution occurred to me. I took a couple of sate sticks (bamboo skewers), stuck them into the soil around my friendly studio succulent, and piled the bobbins on top. Now they’re tamed and proudly showing their colors.
