Strange, spelling `tie, tied, tying' was present both in online version of
Oxford dictionary and in 1999 version of Webster's N.I.D. and word `tieing'
gave no hits.  Actually, it was a surprise for me that `tieing' was not
present in these Oxford and Webster's 1999 dictionary.

Also, if you search `tieing' with Google, it says `Did you mean: tying'.

In contrast, Merriam-Webster online gave a hit:

I agree that both are ok. According to the quick search (above) spelling
`tying' has been in wider use.
