Weekend fitzle-fatzle

Two more sheets of threadends, spread out between layers of tulle that had been sprinkled with bright and/or shiny snippets of fabric. The top one was held together by straight rows of stitch (something to do while watching tv) and then had straight rows of machining added. The bottom one went straight under the machine, collecting lots and lots of separate circles - the snipped threads between them were tidily collected in the bowl.

Hours of pleasurable machining later, they are ready to become bookwraps. I tried to make the underside "interesting" too -
One more sheet of threadends is in progress - it will become three small bookwraps. Overall, I'm thinking "Quilters' Guild tombola" - but in the short term I'm thinking "Christmas presents".
