I've been stitching like a woman possessed in every free moment over the last few weeks and have got all the bits securely in place. Now I'm faced with a decision: to outline stitch or not . . . I think the only way to decide is to do a little and see if it adds enough punch to the piece to make it worthwhile to spend the extra time - weeks - to complete a Step 5. I'll post some photos of the area I outline in a few days, and you can let me know your opinion.
