    cross stitch first then outline - I dread outlining - my most least favorite step! This is cute, can we see when finished?

    Sure, but the way I've been going with it, it'll be 2012 before I finish it...I started it six months ago and just picked it up again, lol.

    Do the cross stitching first. Then finish with the backstitch.

    Haven't cross-stitched in years...but when I did, I always outlined last.
