In the spirit of welcoming new faces, we’re updating our About Us Section:
We (officially) introduce Jenn Topp, our local quilter and Sunday Girl!
I have lived in: NDG
Book(s) on my nightstand right now: Second book in the Hunger Games series (yeah, I’m a little slow on the trends), Sunday Morning Quilts
My Imaginary Best Friends: Every one of my Twitter friends.
Mortal Enemies: My refrigerator, things up on high shelves, people who think it’s okay to mistreat service industry workers
Overrated: Having bangs, Rufus Wainwright
Guilty pleasure(s): 80′s and 90′s pop music on my iPod, ice cream, FABRIC!
If I go to hell, I’ll be forced to: Fold laundry while listening to Nickelback
Right now I’m wearing: Pink Crocs ballet flats (I swear they don’t look like Crocs), capri pants and a t-shirt.
Sew do’s & don’ts: Do use a 1/4 inch foot when piecing quilts, check twice cut once, use lots of pins on curves (and forget about the pins on straight seams). Most importantly don’t be afraid to try new things.
This designer would dress me for the Oscars: Christian Lacroix would come out of retirement/bankruptcy to make me a dress.
This actor/actress would play me in my Hollywood movie: Drew Barrymore
When I grew up, I was going to be: A nurse, a teacher, a fashion designer. Pretty close! (I have a degree in art therapy).
My friends call me: Jen, Jenny, never Jennifer.
Favorite quote: “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar” -Sigmund Freud.
I love: Watching my son sleep, being greeted at the door by the cats, and how my geek husband is always trying to incorporate electronics into my sewing.
