I met Eleanor at a quilt show in Julian, CA about 7years ago when we were visiting grand daughter and hubby. He was deployed for 6 months. We really saw southern Calif. I was showing my daugher and grand daughter the lovely blue and yellow she does and she stepped around the corner and said,"I am so glad you like my fabric". I just about fainted. A year or so later the fire destroyed part of the town of Julian. She lived up in the hills and did escape the flames.
