Just so my carefully arranged photos don't mislead you, things aren't always sweetness and light over here in Stringplay land.
Look at that MESS of tangled thread!
I need some small ziplock bags perhaps. That, a few extra hours, and way more patience than I've ever possessed.
Why, oh why, aren't I neat and tidy?
awhile later..........back at the ranch........
in lieu of patience, I employed the scissors and sacrificed a few yards of string.
Ah, much better.
