Turning in the Margins

Pat is working away on a darning stitch background for her Bitch canvas from Bloomin' Stitches.  The pretty pink heart stitch she is using is done with horizontal stitches worked across the row, left to right or right to left.  It takes seven passes across the width of the canvas to create a row of hearts.  To have the threads lay flat without twisting, Pat has to work a little pin stitch outside the margin of her design.    I thought you'd like to see how she is doing it in case you want to use a darning stitch yourself and need a smooth look.
