Druid banner - lettering: outlining OBOD

The gold kid letters look fine by themselves, but I think they would look better more sharply delineated.  To achieve this, I've outlined them in the same dark green passing thread I used for the spirals on the lower half of the trilithon.

Close up on a pip, you may be able to see that as before I've used two lengths of the passing thread, couched closely around the edge of the gold kid piece:

And the letters outlined too:

If you compare to how they looked in the previous post, you can see that they appear much stronger now.

The text around the top next - there's rather more of that, so it's going to take a bit longer to do.
