Heart design

A bit more doodling, I love hearts and I have been using them in my work quite a lot and I was trying with the doodling method to do something that I could stitch later. We will see if that happens but I am finding great satisfaction in playing at the moment.
Adelaide today, I had to be in the city center by 9.30, so an early start, poor Mary spent most of the day at the clinic there and the final prognosis was that she has to have an operation and pins inserted in her spine and a hospital stay of 10 days and at nearly 80 I would imagine a long recovery.
Tabby and Millie and I saw my mother and Millie was very good and terribly sweet but about an hour and a half was enough for Mummy.
Went to see Paddy who gave us lunch and we sat outside in her garden and talked and Millie was a hoot, throwing balls and generally having a good time. Then the long slow haul of collecting Mary and then John from the airport and home.
My first big drive for ages and boy am I tired.

I sounds like a very long and busy day, but also fun and interesting. Sorry to hear about the operation, that will take some time for the healing afterwards.
I like your heart sketch, it woulde look lovely in an embroidery. Your days are always full and rich.

The doodley heart will be ideal for embroidery. Very nice!!! Pins in the spine...ugh...doesn't sound pleasant. Have a good rest after your long drive, Penny

After such a busy and emotional day it is good that you can relax by doodling that lovely heart. It would sure make a good embroidery.

How are you doing, Penny? Too busy sketching? Thinking of you and wishing you a lovely weekend. Hugs from Portugal.
