My New Best Friend

Here she is . . . the newest addition to my household! Isn't she pretty?? I'm so happy to have a working computer again. I'm switching from a PC to a Mac, so there is a bit of a learning curve, but I'm getting it.
Every time I cut thread tails off the end of a seam, I add it to this jar. My jar began to overflow, so I needed to find a way to recycle the thread.
This is what I came up with - thread circles.
I got a little carried away and made quite a few of them in various colors and sizes. This one already has a home in my newest piece.
Do you have a favorite recycling technique? If so, I would love to hear about it.
