Paula called it! They are kumquats! Marie Barber, the designer, just emailed me. And a little inside scoop -- she's just finished a companion piece! Sign me up to stitch that!

Here's what a kumquat looks like ~

Thanks to Wikipedia ~ I now know what these are. Thought you would like to know I was totally wrong in my guess from the last post. lol And I must apologize to anyone who might have taken offense to my odd sense of humor.

Will be leaving in a couple of hours to get those prom pictures. Check back later this evening and I'm sure I'll have them posted. Shoot - two posts in one day! Something most definitely froze over.

It's the weekend ~ woohoo...oh, except the munchkins will be over at 6:15am tomorrow morning. That is going to be a L-O-N-G day.

Oh, what a relief, Kumquats, not the other items. I'm going to keep the vision of Kumquats dancing in my head.

Can't wait to see the prom pix!

I never thought those would be kumquats - go figure. Glad that the mystery is solved.

And ibe if these days I will actually try a Kumquat and see what they taste like. They are so tiny . . smaller than CLementine "oranges."

Glad you got the answer to your ? Denise. Even though I know that they are kumquats, I'm sure I will be thinking the other when I start to stitch mine :-)

Your stitching is coming along beautifully... can't wait to see what the companion piece looks like!
