Twist to the 60's Batik Blog Hop

Well there...welcome to my TWISTed take of the 60's .

Thanks to two of the coolest SKIRTS in town, our fav STONE FOX'S...Madame Samm, and Mary. You two have sure brought us right back to our youth!  :-) Just in case your memory is fuzzy, you can check out this link for the meaning of the 60's lingo right here...

http://www.the60sofficialsite.com/Do_You_Remember_The_60s_Slang_.html



I'd like to introduce 3 lovely Bawdy BATIK Beauties. Don't kid yourself, we/they were all those flower children of the 60's, who just don't want to grow up!

                                                         First up


Gorgeous Ginger, who's talents after her swinging 60's life style, took a turn towards home making. But not giving up all the joys of that era, still prefers cooking in the kitchen with those fish net stocking on!  We used to call it BA!
 
Way to go Ginger!
 
Next 
 
 
We have the Absolutely Awesome Amber, who just never could pass up the chance to dance in the streets.  While Marilyn Monroe passed away in 1962, Amber still chooses to re-live that fabulously famous pose,
and at this age no less!  Bitchin!
 
 
Finally
 
 
We have every one's favorite bar hop, Ravishing Roxy!
Oh, that Gilhooley's bar will never be the same again.
:-)
She can still put "her" twist on the place, after all these years!
Complete with a drag, and a tattoo too. Is that like a double negative?
LOL!!
 
 
 
So there you have it, 3 of the most fabulous broads of the 60's, still living life to the fullest.  (no pun intended, yea right)
;-)
 

 
 
 
 


 
 
Looks like the moral to this story is, that no one really has to grow up!
60's baby...
That's real flower power!

 (compliments of photobucket)
 
I've got to admit that looking thru the Official 60's web site, was like a blast to the past! 
 
Memba these...
FINK
DIG
HICKEY
MOON
NEATO
 
They sure made me chuckle!
 Ohhh, and that that famous slug bug game? 
 I can't tell you just how many bruises my arm suffered due to those darn little cars!
I sure don't remember the safety pin clause either.
What about you?
 
Those were the days my friend!
:-)

Now leave me a comment and share your favorite memory of the 60's.
I will be drawing 1 name for a yard of this wild and wacky fabric.



While it's not a batik, it is one of my Sateen Snow Dye fabrics.
This hop is over on Oct 4th, so that's the day I will pick my winner.

:-)
 Hop on over to see what kind of twist my fellow bloggers are putting on life today!

  1. You have the sickest humor that I just ADORE!! What fun it would be to sew along side you - although no drinks allowed as I might be spewing it with a laugh or peeing my pants. There were so many wonderful things about the 60's - I have to go with our little 'bug' - we went on many adventures with that car.

  2. Aaaah, you just made my day!!!! I nearly swallowed a fire-hot-coffee when I saw your trio!!!! Great, I am still giggling, waouh, those legs and... well, well done!!!!! Great use of the fabrics, really, I adore them all, but my fav might be the cooking girl, because that is the place where I am most, after the sewing room :-))

  8. Love your 60's chicks. The slug bug game is still around, you know. They call it "punch buggy" now. I know because I drive a pretty yellow one of the new beetles and I see kids doing it as I drive by. Still hilarious. Thanks for the chuckle today. Great job.

  20. Such fun ladies, and they look wonderful in batiks. Unfortunately I don't have any memories of the 60's, mainly because I wasn't born yet, but I do remember watching all the Beach Party movies with my siblings during the summers when I was younger. Not sure if they embodied the true 60's, but they were fun shows!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yess, those were the days,,,, Just amazing ladies. I'm out of words.....
    My favorite memory, sitting on an island with and old wooden sailing boat to maintain, and listening to Bob Dylan... in the sunshine, with my boyfriend.
    What more could anyone wish for???

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love your 'Ladies'. The memories of the 60's all kind of run together with the music, what was going on in the world with wars, space, protests, etc., - nope didn't do 'MJ' but it all was sure an eye opening time. I was more a flower child than anything else. Thanks for the humor.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a great start to my day. Your ladies are such fun, I love the Tat. Congrats on being one of the choosen. i'm tied between the clothes and the music for my best memories of the 60's.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wasn't around in the 60's... but I have to say if the last gal was a blond it would be me! Tattoo and all! Have you had someone salking me!? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow ! Your naughty ladies are works of art ! I am totally impressed !

    ReplyDelete
  28. Look at your ladies!!! Wow! Thank you for showing them to us! I have to say that I am from the 80's and that I don't have memories, but the pictures of my parents are fantastic. My mom with her long hair and her mini skirts : )

    ReplyDelete
  29. I married in 1960 so I had to settle down and be a good wife.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh My Goodness! Your ladies are so funny and so adorable. You really made my day. I enjoyed seeing them this morning. You did such a fantastic job. Thank you for sharing. My favorite memories of the 60's are going to the drive-in movie theater with the person that I eventually married.

    ReplyDelete
  36. These made me laugh! I have no personal memories of the 60s, but I love the music!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those are amazing. It has improved my spirit today just getting a chuggle out of those. Just a girl running around with my four brothers was my life of the 60's. I was actually born in 1960, the beginning of that era. Life was so simple then. We can't wait to grow up but some days I wish I was just that little girl again. You do amazing work and always enjoy seeing what you come up with next.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Those are some beautiful babes you created here! I love the detail, and especially fell for Ginger.... Cooking will never be the same again! I managed to miss the sixties (born in 1970, so only just). I do love the freaky colours and the music of course. This was a real fun post. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Omg.....just fabulous...I love love love them! I was born in 1969. So I have no true memories of the era. Just figure I should have been born earlier. I would have been a peace loving hippie chic for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You made me laugh outrageously. Being a preteen and teen throughout the sixties I never thought much about what the older, more sophisticated gals were up to. Hilarious. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those gals made me laugh! Cute designs. It has been fun to see all the creativity. Thanks for the give away. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

  42. Love these gals! My favorite 60's memory is the funky clothes I was allowed to wear! Looking at some of those pictures makes me crack up!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Loved all three of your ladies! Great job! I was born in 1960 and remember all of us watching Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. That was 1969, the same year my brother was born.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and the chance to win.

  57. Oh, the 60's--high school, college, peace marches, long hippy dresses and folk music--many good memories. These most memorable would have to be my wedding day, Nov. 28, 1968--45 years ago this year. I love, love these saucy ladies. I had to laugh out loud! Excellent work!

  64. Oh My Groovy Goodness! You have me totally laughing with these awesome ladies of the 60's. Hippies never grow up. Your sense of humor is wicked good. Thank you for hopping. Creative Stitching Bliss...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Far out! That looks like tie-dyed fabric that was certainly popular in the 60's and the style still can be found at booths at crafts festivals today. Those healthy ladies are groovy, but I think Marilyn would have been the only one around then. Maybe a protester at a Vietnam War rally or a couple attending a rock concert smoking weed would be reminiscent of those memorable times. I lived through it, growing up in SF, but escaped to a more traditional environment for college. My daughter lives in the "Haight' now because it's close to work. My husband's family had a business at Haight/Asbury during those times. We now live in the 'burbs but are moving back while our house is being renovated. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I had to laugh all the way through this post. I love it. The sixties were where it was if you know what I mean. Cruising through all the rootbeer stands in our souped up old cars was my favorite thing. Cruise night we called it. Love those sixties.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wow, those '60's ladies sure are living life to the fullest. Great job.

  76. You quilts make me laughing out loud, wonderful work and a great post.
    Thanks! ☺☺☺

    ReplyDelete
  77. Those were my school years, so many great times. I do remember the first time I heard the 1st Beatles album. A group of us girls were trying to find music for a marching routine for our HS Drill team and one of the girls had this new album. I'd heard them on Ed Sullivan but to hear song after song. Love at first chord! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Those are three delightful gals.....great applique work! Thanks for sharing with us. I enjoyed the mini skirts....even had maternity clothes that were mini in 1970!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I absolutely love your bawdy batik beauties! Thanks for the fun. My memories of the sixties include my first Barbie doll, the golden arches, and the Beatles

    ReplyDelete
  80. I have never seen those gals in fabric before, sometimes at the local supermarket though. Hehehe! Great work!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Oh, you made me laugh and laugh and laugh. The quilts are absolutely phenomenal. I didn't think they could get any better and each was as good as the previous, or better. I am still chuckling. I was watching a version of Match Game with host Bert Convey. The password was "hickey." Mclean Stevenson thought a hickey was a zit. Obviously, his partner didn't get the word correct. Thanks for participating, inspiring, and entertaining us.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh my gosh! Those are incredible and made me really chuckle. Don't they say that if you remember the 60s that you didn't live them??? Your work is soooo groovy!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Roxi, Amber, and Ginger are hot, hot, hot and bitchin', too! Glad they never gave up the 60s. Your quilts are just totally groovin'. And...I didn't miss the moose until just now. That's ok cuz your girls are bad ass. I think my husband got me with his "What's your bag?" and we're still groovin to the 60s tunes and doing 'the twist' with Chubby Checker!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Muahahahaha. These are awesome!!! .......Or should I say these quilts are boss!
