Stray threads become artistic cards
When I finish a sewing project, I clean my sewing-room floor with an adhesive lint roller. The threads that adhere often form a design reminiscent of Jackson Pollock’s work. [Editor’s note: Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an influential American abstract expressionist who used the “drip and splash” method of painting instead of using a paint brush.] When my lint roller’s outer layer becomes full of threads and lint, I affix it to folded card stock, creating a unique note card. If any tackiness remains, I press it against one of my sweaters to cover the stickiness with lint. It’s a great way to create cards that my friends-especially friends who sew-enjoy receiving.
