Some Friday Fun, The Ladies of U-Tube

Aching for floral inspiration here, this is a blossom of a Japanese Eggplant from last summer.

What started as a small little tutorial on U-Tube by a Sewist years ago has blossomed, or should I say exploded, into a full fledged idea generating business. If you are new to U-Tube you will find that you can view tutorials by everyone from a craftist painting a flea market find to the pro's at quilting shops showing you how to make the simplest to the most complicated quilt. I have learned how to repair a toilet mechanism, how to assemble a piece of IKEA furniture to how to use a provisional cast on for a scarf on a Knitting channel! I am loving U-Tube.     

That said, I wanted to provide some interesting new links some of my favorite ladies of U-tube. Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company is a regular feature on this blog as you know.  Kimberly Jolly of the Fat Quarter Shop stars in these videos with Jill Finley of with some tips for the new Sewist and those of us who have been around the block a few times but are always looking for tips and inspiration!

Here are some new finds for a Friday morning! Don't forget to add a new roll of Freezer Paper to the grocery list this week!
