    Everyone should have an izy!!!!

    My fabric stash has been in chaos for ages and needed some serious 'sorting'!! My special friend Izy has spent the last 3 days working her magic.......and I am thrilled with the results!!!! We have had such a fun time sorting scraps from yardage, crumbs from fat quarters and finding long forgotten UFO's!!!!!! Izy you are such an inspiration and I can't wait to get started making LOTS of scrap quilts!!!!!! Watch this space!!!!!

    If I had the extra cash I would send Izy a ticket to CA to help me with organizing my sewing room, stash etc! Oh heck, both of you could come and make a week of it.

    Well heck ... I'll be in the UK in October, perhaps I should pack my stash! Can I get Izzy to Essex??
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I suppose my 'Izy' was the removal of my gallbladder last August. I was home, and my fabric cabinet was close by calling my name. It took me a few days, but I organized it. I was able to nap in between. Nothing cleans out a house full of children quicker than a sick parent and fabric organization!!!!

    What a nice friend you have in Izy!
    Go forth and sew!

    She makes it such fun!! I felt so overwhelmed at the thought of it.....but she made it 'do-able'!!!! I'm now fired with enthusiasm to re-arrange my sewing room in a more 'organised' way!!!!

    Hey that may just be the new direction in life I am looking for since losing John. Over here we had a long running popular programme called...'How clean is your house' where a couple of ladies came in and got the house straight with lots of tips on keeping on top etc....maybe I need to make a 'How organised is your stash?' programme to help all quilters who have become overwhelmed with their stash get to grips! LOL

    What a stash and what a terrific friend! Some folks make money (I mean, serious money!!) for organizing like that. Izy could turn her fun into profit. Not that she probably wants to...but I'm just sayin'.
