Are you busy working on your Trend-Tex Challenge? We sure hope so! Some have already arrived.
While I was encouraging members to complete their Trend-Tex quilt because that is the second component of the fundraiser, our Director at Large, Laine Canivet facebooked some of her dilemmas with this challenge.
While it is not nice to laugh at others, Laine has made it so entertaining that you simply can't help but chuckle.
The conversation started with me asking the Regional Representatives how they were making out with their Trend-Tex Challenge. Then Laine joined in.
Funny you should ask. I have had nothing but trouble. I have ended up having to
paint all the white fabric to cover up the stain after trying bleach, unsuccessfully. Then I
had to paint all the pink fabric to hide the bleach stains that seeped into it when I tried to
fix the white. The last coat of paint is drying, as we speak.
- aine Canivet and the pink isn't really pinkL
- Laine Canivet I agree. - and I hope you have better luck than me. I just put my finished
- piece on the wall to admire it - when I realized I forgot to use the blue fabric. Maybe I'll
- just paint a spot blue and call it a day!
You can see the line of white paint does not quite touch the pink fabric.
The pink paint on some of the pink fabric so it matches the well-painted pink fabric (not shown) that got inadvertently bleached.
I doubt there will be anyone who has quite as many issues as Laine did with her Trend-
the Challenge. There are 10 kits left and would love to sell out, so if you need one, let me know.
Tex Challenge! So please, if you have bought the fabric, whip up a creation and enter it in
