    Gotta love Eleanor Burns!

    Had a horrendous day at work (computer problems the last 2 days and mentally exhausted). Now have a glass of wine in my hand, my feet up on the desk, and am watching Eleanor Burns videos. You gotta love this woman! She's a little quirky but I find her voice hypnotic, her stories interesting, and her lessons enlightening. You go, Eleanor Girl! http://quiltinaday.com/theater/

    It's probably bad if my kitty is sitting here watching Eleanor right?

    Agree, she'll put you in a good mood. The only problem I have with her is that she taught me to throw my pieces on the floor. I've been doing it since I start quilting and can't stop! She inspires in so many ways the good and the bad! Kinda like your childhood BFF...LOL

    I love her patterns, books and tools; however, her voice drives me bonkers. The glass of wine might make it easier, but it is only 9:30 in the morning. She is an amazing talent, but has one of those "too sweet" voices. Now, Jenny Doan I could listen to all day and be happy as a clam. Which poses the the question, how happy are clams?

    I love her!!! She has revolutionized quilting. She is quirky..... but very passionate about quilting and teaching!

    My husband, on the other hand, leaves the room if I am watching her on t.v. ;-)

    My husband says he needs several glasses of wine to listen to Elanor....I just keep her program on. I enjoy her tips and instructions.

    Just took a class from her at Sew Expo last Friday. She is a real kick! Puts on a great show. In talking to her later in the day realized she is also just a plain NICE lady. I also enjoy Jenny Doan. Her quick techniques are great.

    I bought a package of the scraps she threw on the floor. LOL. She said she'll never tell who picks them up but she believed if you made the mess you clean it up. I've meet her many times at Paducah. She is a treasure.
    Got fabric?

    My husband loves to watch her throw the scraps over her shoulder. He always comments on it. A lot of what I know about quilting is what I learned from watching her on TV. She is a wonderful teacher.

    Her patterns are very well written and easy to follow. Love to watch her online or on RFD TV.

    My husband even enjoys Eleanor Burns. He calls her 'that crazy lady', but will sit there and watch her shows on TV with me. Doesn't hurt to have him somewhat conversational in 'quilt language'.

    I am with your husband on the voice. Love her books and patterns and even videos, if I keep the volume turned almost off as that giggly voice just drives me bats.

    I heard her say she works with two men when taping so being the only woman there she gets to clean up her own scraps. I'm going to see her lecture tomorrow night in Melbourne. Really looking forward to it.

    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 too have a package of her "tossed on the floor" scraps. Every time I look at them pinned up on my board I just smile.

    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.
