    When doing a pattern that has outlining, do you do the filler first or the outline first. I notice when I do the outline first, it tends to get covered when I do the cross stitching to fill in...so I've been doing the cross stitching first then the outlining. What is your preference?

    UHGGG...I wish I had known that before I started the pattern....this is what I have so far...

    I guess I'll fill it all in then go over with another strand of floss to make the outline pop...the pattern tells me to do the outlines first....uhggg
