Day 2 of Let's Twist to the 60's with Batiks, with Island Batik and Reliable as our sponsors

                ARE YOU READY? To turn back time, to twist, embrace LOVE, PEACE....

 I am so ready to TWIST like we did last summer. ( oops sorry TWIST gotta away with me)
Mary from I piece too Mary is keeping the music on, the twister mat is on the floor and we are ready to show everything BATIKS. We certainly have something in common, white gloves, pearls, dresses...OHHHHh so us....We certainly would never ever been thought of as anything hippie... ( unless we are talking HIPS, which I certainly have.)

A couple years ago when I first saw BATIKS, my first thought...."sooo sixties"  and yes I expect
for all of our project designers to make me smile... Here is our GO-GO girls on todays line up..

and we have to have some giveways....Island Batiks sent over these
bountiful bundles...

 Island Batik.. they have such a wide variety of textures, designs, colours...welllll look and see.
thanks so much for being our sponsor....YOU add so much colour and texture to our quilting lives...

And as much my idealism of the 60's is more in par of  Jacqueline Kennedy style, I can certainly embrace the need for colour in our surroundings...

So as it goes...HOW CAN YOU WIN?

#1 for participating, all those who were in our hop have a chance to win one of these bundles..
#2 for being in our top 2 each day...top 1 and most creative...
#3 for leaving comments..

  1. Well, I stayed up to make sure my post went live on time and I have visited the other ladies but one... she is running a tad late. I will have to visit her when I get up. For now, I have to go get some shut eye.. I have been falling asleep when I sit down. I think I am wore out from everything that has been going on all summer. Time to rest and regroup.
