A little while ago I posted a picture of my poor little waif Nancy Ann Storybook doll on Flickr. She had a sweet little face I just couldn't abandon her, so she has waited patiently in the cabinet for a time when I might make her some new arms and repair her feet.
Well very fortuitously a blog/Flickr/Ipernity friend from afar was given some 'spare parts' the other week and much to my surprise and delight she offered to send my sweet little girl some arms. I was of course delighted at the offer as these dolls so very rarely become available in England, let alone parts for them.
They arrived today and I duly performed 'surgery' on her.
She still needs her feet repaired but in the mean time, there was also another surprise in the package. Not only did this dear friend send the arms she also made this little doll an outfit WITH shoes!
The crochet work is exquisite and I am overawed by her generosity and talent.
Sweet little Beth - named after this friend - waves her a big hello and thank you.
She looks so much happier and even prettier now!
Beth has a wonderful website where she shares patterns, tips and hints and of course pictures of her dolls and creations. It can be found here.
Thank you so much, you have really made my day!
