|Linda's apron says "Grandmas Gone Wild." It's true.|
Has it really been five years since I blogged about STITCH's first dye party on Anderson Island?! we-dyed-laughing.html Time sure does fly when you get old(er)!!!
This time, Andrea, our hostess, kicked it up a notch by pouring homegrown blackberry cordials on the deck while the fabric soaked in the dye buckets.

|Mad scientists at work. That's Andrea in front.|
Andrea's island home is accessible only by ferry, so we carpooled over and enjoyed the perfect summer weather -- sunny but breezy and not too hot. Linda and Anne (below) immediately took up residence in the deck chairs while the rest of us milled around the kitchen drinking coffee.
Delaine and Anne took a little rest while waiting for the dye fest to begin. Ah, island life ...
|White-on-white design pops when dyed.|
We wrapped it up about six hours later, full of good food, drink and friendship -- to say nothing of colorful fabric. Then it was back to the ferry, leaving island time behind.
