Yo-yo Mania!

I have been playing around with an old design.  I had been making these yo-yo pincushions and thread catchers a few years ago, but stopped.  They are more than a bit labor intensive with all of those little yo-yo's around the pincushion.  But lately I have been loving making those little yo-yo's. I've sold a few of these items in my Etsy shop, Curry Bungalow and have plans to make a few more. They are very popular so far!  I've had a number of requests for the pattern and I probably would have written it by now, but for the life of me, I can't think of a snappy name for it.  The "Yo-yo Thread Catcher with Detachable Pincushion" has no pizazz whatsoever.  Any ideas?

These Civil War prints made up very nicely. Small prints work best for the pincushion and I like to add either a tiny vintage pearl bead or a little vintage button to the center of  each yo-yo.
