                ARE YOU still ready  To turn back time, to twist, embrace LOVE, PEACE....

 I am still twisting  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..
