    Given the beauty of the first three fabrics, what was the point of the fourth?

    Anyone have any ideas, at all?

    Yes, this is truly gray. With silver metallic.

    And... how about this one? At least the coloring is warmer, and not so stark. Gold metallic here.

    They're from the 2010 holiday lineup.

    Well... I always think that the manufacturers must be doing some sort of market research, to figure out what the customers want. But... sometimes I see a fabric and wonder what they were thinking.

    They've run the first cardinal print for probably the better part of a decade. Maybe longer. It's hard to improve on a design that's already pretty near perfect!

    Hoffman is also doing the cardinals in a half-size this year too. I think they're kinda cute. I could tell the sales rep was not keen on it, though. She said that she hadn't sold any of the larger gray version yet. Though I don't think she's had the samples for very long, so it's probably too early to tell.
