    Eleanor Burns

    Saw on Facebook that Eleanor Burns' sister, Judy, passed away. Did Eleanor's husband pass away last year?

    Sorry to hear about her sister.....I gathered from her videos/shows that she and her sister did a lot of sewing together.

    Eleanor's husband walked out on her when she had two small children. She had told this story during her many taped shows, saying he went out with the trash (while jokingly throwing scraps of fabric over her shoulder)
    I'd say she got the last laugh on him!

    They did a tour of her home on that show that has Alex Anderson and Ricky Timms and the boyfriend was there at the end of it so she'll have a shoulder to lean on.

    Eleanor is so endearing on her taped shows. It's so fun to watch them. She's a doll.

    In one of her quilt books, she also told the story of her quilt story. She started when her hubby dumped her for another woman...after she had put him thru school. She's come a long ways!

    I really admire her and all that she's accomplished. I love her piecing techniques and I'm so glad that she is generous enough to share her videos online.
