Technorati on this one. As well as Aaron Proctor. And the Washington Examiner. And the Daily Caller. And GeekSugar. And most of the comments on my own Inquirer.
(** UPDATE: according to the Mayor they are only requesting this of people who claimed revenue on their federal income taxes, but did not report to the City.)
You may be thinking "Bee. You don't sell ad space. Get mad about something that affects you directly." OK, I will. This next part was my originally intended post--the above just seemed too timely to ignore.
For the past two years the Philadelphia Phillies have been the Major League Baseball National League Champions, and in 2008 were the world champions. While there are a lot of bandwagon fans, there are also a lot of hard-core fans. And some of these hard-core Phillies fans want diaper bags made out of Phillies fabric, yo. I ask you this seriously: do you have any idea how difficult it is to find Phillies fabric that isn't fleece? Neither did I! It is dang near impossible to find! And when you do manage to find it? CAH-RAZY expensive! I can't imagine why they wouldn't make plain cotton with team logos on it for quilts and other items, but they make fleece. I understand fleece for football, played in the colder months. I don't understand fleece for baseball, as though fans would only want a blanket in the winter instead of perhaps a quilt or something. That something being a diaper bag. This is the fabric I'm after:
I love it because it has such a classic look!
And these are the "deals:"
- 2.5 yards...for $175!!!!
- a fat eighth...for $20!!
- a 10 X 10 piece...for $10!!!
Now, you may be thinking, "Bee. Please get some more coffee and chillax." So I'm off to give the people what they want.
Back soon with some weekend sewing pics!
