still life

Another day another brush stroke, some improve, some don't.  Taking pics of progress is helpful, as until now I am usually convinced my first try was better, and that I have fiddled too much and ruined it, blaming City and Guilds Creative Embroidery and the incessant "layering".  Now trying to cut back, or in recent work no stitches at all!  
Shroud ........may have to bury it!.

Agree with Carol but prefer "fortitude".
Terribly hard to stop fiddling and there's no way of undoing it like photo tweaking programmes have.
I'm impressed by the self portrait.
