Thread catcher addiction

These gorgeous little thread catchers - they sure are addictive, as many of you have said.
 These are my first 2.  A regular sized one on the right, and a baby half size one on the left.

Then -  Because Susan mentioned matching - I decided to make another to match one of my pin cushions, which also matches my sewing machine cover.  I had just enough ricrac left over to put around the top of it as well.

I especially love the matching pin cushion and TC, but the others are great too.
