"Carrots used to be purple before the 17th century, almost all carrots cultivated were purple. The modern day orange carrot wasn’t cultivated until Dutch growers in the late 16th century took mutant strains of the purple carrot, including yellow and white carrots and gradually developed them into the sweet, plump, orange variety we have today.

Last corner of Kaleidoscope left to stitch. Ran out of DMC 3052 and with the ice out there today, I'm not venturing out to pick up one color as much as I really, really want to! So I'll get as far as I can, set it aside and get started on the next Whiskerkins, or maybe I'll design today. A whole lotta new things running around in my head. Need to get them down to free up some space!
