Day 3 of Let's twist to the 60's with Batiks with Island Batiks 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...

remember this logo...you will be seeing a lot of them in the near future

 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..

What a delightful end to our 60's week....looking forward to next weeks...I am feeling the groove, peace and all the love poured into this hop..

OUR NEATEST winner today is 

A message that should be adhered to ....MAKE LOVE NOT WAR--globally!

This lady just keeps shining as bright as her creations...

This young lady was not even around in the 60's  or was she lol
Her take on a peace symbol and the love around her is most reflective in this
