I belong to several fun knitting groups on Ravelry. Lovely friendly people and lots of encouragement...and they make great enablers as well!
For some time I have had on my 'wish list' a Hearts for Hearts doll, but didn't think I would be able to get one, as they are not generally available over here. One day when I was just perusing Evilbay (like you do, or maybe you don't?!) I discovered a listing for a really lovely girl - almost as new with her box and unused accessories for a fantastic price in this country, and so decided to go for her. There was no having to choose 'which one' so in a way that was good as I didn't have to make a decision about whom I preferred from this collection.
The box is nice and colourful.
The back of the box tells you about the different dolls in the series.
The side has a little bit of information about the particular doll.
The inside opens up a bit like a book (it closes with little velcro buttons)
She was safely cocooned in bubble wrap to protect her. All her accessories are included (unopened and not removed) I need to look at this properly - I might photograph them tomorrow when it is light and add to the bottom of this post.
Her clothing is different to that pictured - apparently they changed the design when they released the dolls, from that of the box picture. The clothes are nicely made, the shoes are plastic.
She has such a pretty face.
She wears bangles/bracelets on her right wrist and also has pierced ears.
Her hair is beautifully soft.
She meets Clara, my Corolle Les Cherie doll.
She is a little taller, but for knitting purposes I believe the same patterns can be used. I will know soon as I hope to start knitting for her tonight!
