Having struggled out of the box himself he then turns to help his new friend who he met whilst out at Jackie's.
He carefully begins to remove the bubble wrap that was protecting her during the journey.
As he gently eases it away from her very pretty face we get our first real glimpse of her.
Then extends his hands to help her into a sitting position until she gets the circulation back into her legs after her long flight before attempting to stand up.
I think that this photo below shows you just what a gentle loving lad that he is.
At last we can see her in her full glory. She is a 1971/2 Trendon blonde Gingham lass that has been re-rooted by Jackie after being given an unflattering hair cut by her previous little owner.
She is wearing a OOAK sundress that I sent the material to Ruth Hartley to make up for me with commercially made Mary-Jane canvas shoes.
Her blonde hair 'with highlights' are the same as Ross'and left here to hang loosely around her face.
Clipped back with slides. (Couldn't just find my smaller sized slides.)
Hair in side bunches.
I had forgotten about telling you her name until Lorraine reminded me in her comment. I have called her Eline after Jacqueline (Jackie) using the last five letters.
Her hair is so adaptable, seen here in twisted plaits. (Unfortunately I lost the close up one of her plaits whilst adding the text and don't want to bother Sarah again especially with the pain from her bad finger.)
Watch this space as their were two delightful Sasha orientated gifts nestling at the bottom of the box which I need to photograph.
More thanks to Sarah for listing these latest photos for me in this wonderful size for easy and time saving viewing.
