Day 6 of Let's Twist to the 60's in Batiks with Island Batik and Reliable as our sponsors

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

 I am still 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..

October 2

Stitching by the Beach ( loss in her family
has kept her away, sympathy from us all)

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..

 Our top in Peace

A symbol most certainly reflective
of 60's and love all the pin wheel blocks...I am feeling it wink...

and our Grooviest Creativity

Ok, so this Hippie has aged, but still full of spunk and there is no doubt
about it, full of humour too! 

And congrats to one of our GO GO GIRls who won this...just for signing up..thanks To Reliable Corp
for LIGHTING our lives.

JANE from Grandmama stories  OHHHH my you won, you won...there will be LIGHT in your life...
for at least 60,000 hours anyway....

    Prayers for healing to Stitching by the Beach.

  7. Very groovy projects today - thoughts and prayers for Sitching by the Beach.

  8. I am digging this blog hop with all the far out projects. I also like going to just a few blogs per day, rather than a dozen or more per day. I would like to see the future hops have more days, but no more than 6-8 participants per day, so we can enjoy the blogs more and not rush through to get to the next one on the list. I for one spend too much time on the computer as it is. That's my 2 cents for what it's worth.

  9. Oh my goodness. So creative and funny.

  10. The retired hippie chick is my fav of the day as well!

  11. Such great picks again today!

  12. The Peace Sign quilt was my favorite too! LOVE it.
