When tying a bunch of the same pattern, it's a good idea to lay out the materials before hand, so you can just grab and go. I turn a post it note over, sticky side up, and put a small weight on it to keep it from wandering off. I just put the ends of my pre-sorted hackles on the sticky part, and they're easy to grab when I need one. You can use it for all sorts of materials. The sticky stuff is pretty gentle and doesn't seem to leave any residue on the materials.

good tip chase,

i also use them when applying hansens. i put a small drop on the post-it (so i can close the cap up). i then just dip the bodkin into the drop as needed.

“You didn’t find a padlock on my door (maybe I should have put one on) for I feel that a cabin in the wilderness should be open to those who need shelter. My charge for the use of it is reasonable, I think, although some no doubt will be unable to afford what I ask, and that is- take care of it as if you had carved it out with hand tools as I did. If when you leave your conscience is clear, then you have paid the full amount.”
