It’s been many, many years since I’ve done any embroidery. I started this project recently because I wanted something I could do that would make me feel productive when I was sitting around talking with my kids or watching TV with them. I’m making decorative patches to go on old canvas shopping bags. So far, I have used exactly 13 colors on them.
4 shades of green, 3 shades of white, 2 shades each of pink and yellow, and 1 shade each of orange and gray.
