I'm going to make a biscornu to go inside my sewing basket. That's the lid of the basket on top.
I'm using the red and green in the basket
as a starting point for the colors.
The darker linen makes it difficult. Mediums tend to blend right into the background. The picture makes it easier to see how the colors work together.
There are actually four reds and I only need three. The lightest and the darkest I'll definitely use. Right now I'm leaning towards the lightest medium.
I've decided I like the rest of the colors so I'm ready to start stitching.
