Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I just wish I had someone to pick up the snip-its and squiggles that I drop on the floor! I bet she has a staff the clean up for her now. (maybe not when she started!)
I've watched her for many years. i tend to turn the volume down quite a bit due to her voice but still, she's good.
Glad someone else has that problem and can blame it on the women responsible for millions of "quilt addicts"!
I love her, so many times I think someone has come up with a new technique, I look at one of her really old videos and there she is doing it. I want to try her way of doing the Jewel Box quilt.
I had the pleasure to meet Eleanor Burns in her "Quilt in a Day" booth at the last 2 International Quilt Festivals in Houston, TX. She is such a very nice lady. Both times I had a nearby shopper take a picture of me and Eleanor together. Last year, she was wearing a frilly purple boa around her neck and she quickly put one end of the boa also around me for the picture. I also bought one of her books both times and she autographed each one of them.
I think I have a VHS tape of a show where she shows a lady who helps her, sweeping the scraps up and her comment is "I bet you thought I just throw them away, didn't you?" She is great..I taped many of her shows + others from PBS when I had TV.. have some of her books also..LOL
I've learned so much from her, especially with all that she's come through!
