I cleaned out my lint trap the other day and couldn’t throw it out. You see, I usually toss the lint so frequently that I don’t have much to toss. Thanks to my recent slovenliness in this area, I had a nice 1/4″ deep pile of lint in an interesting shade of gray. Well, one can’t just leave lint lying about. I did the only thing I could do….I hooked up the felting machine.
A simple landscape is developing.
It seems to be calling out for some additional thread work and beads. I’ll be able to get back to this in a day or two. I’m not going to feel too bad about letting this interrupt my threadpainting project — this is a small piece and I’ll be back to the sun print next week.
I’ve felted dryer lint before, but it has been quite a while. I created some bark postcards that were a lot of fun. I never know when inspiration will hit. Perhaps I should let the lint trap fill up more regularly.
