Obsessive compulsive something or other

I suppose that you could call this a hobby, but that doesn't quite seem like the right word...
A northern Michigan woman has put her own spin on Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper" by making a replica out of laundry lint.

Laura Bell of Roscommon collected lint from her dryer and fashioned it into a 14-foot-long, 4-foot tall reproduction of the Italian Renaissance painter's masterpiece.

Bell says she needed about 800 hours to do enough laundry to get the lint, and 200 hours to recreate the mural. She bought towels of the colors she wanted and laundered them separately to get the right shades of lint.
Bed Bat & Beyond is hardest hit. At least until she starts her version of the Mona Lisa.
