Too much stuff to say to just comment in the comment box.
So the new releases at the Hoffman website:
Bent Creek - gotta agree - something is up with that mouth
Brittercup - I like these. Amazingly enough.
Crossed Wing - pretty design. Absolutely stitched on the wrong fabric.
Fire Wing - There's room for different dragons. After all, not everything has to appeal to everyone. Which is why I'm not commenting on Cross Stitch Antiques.
Needlemania - Marc has made to Hoffman. This is good.
Nora Corbett - I find the letter C attractive enough because it looks Art Deco.
Not Forgotten Farm - why is there a house in the sewing basket? or am I looking at this incorrectly?
Samsarah - WAY TOO SIMPLE
Willow Hill Samplings - I so want to like this Cinderella design. But there's too much open space to be compelling.
