My May Girl and the drier rack. Majowa dziewczyna i suszarka na bieliznę.

So here she is. I wonder if seeing her shoe before, have you expected she'll look like this?;)

Oh and I forgot to tell you: I had to made these shoes because she came with... two left legs!!!!LOL!

I tried to sew. I really did! But I very soon gave up. The glue is my best friend for sure.:)

I still have some problems with making arms properly...

Anyway I hope you will like her.:)

And as dear Victoria has finally got my give-away gift and showed it on her wonderful blog, I can tell you why she had to wait for so long. As soon as I saw her name on the drawn piece of paper I wanted to make her additional gift. A miniature of something she wrote once she likes very much.:) So I made her very own drier rack. This one is just like you could see it here before, inspired by IKEA.;) Yes, I know it took me too much time....;)

Moja Majowa Dziewczyna. Czy ktos obstawiał, że będzie własnie taka?;)Jak zwykle próbowałam szyć. Ale nie da się ukryć, że klej moim przyjacielem jest.;D Wciąż mam problemy z górą lalki, żeby wyglądała bardziej po ludzku. Mam nadzieję, że się Wam spodoba. Załączam też kilka fotek suszarki, którą zrobiłam specjalnie dla Victorii, zwyciężczyni mojego give-away. Jest to ten sam wzór co poprzednio-inspirowany fotką ze starego katalogu Ikei.

Wow, Ewa! I thought she was going to have a more Modern costume! But I LOVE what you have made! She looks SO authentic! You work Wonders with the Glue! And for sure I think you should "stick" with what works for you!!;)
And Victoria is The Lucky one! Great gifts for her!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Jennifer! I hope so too!

The Old Maid said...

I thought some of you may think she was going to be modern and... young, Betsy. LOL!
I am happy you like her! Thank you so much!!!!

Dark Squirrel Victoria said...

I think she looks perfect! Glue is deficiently my best friend LOL.

As soon as I read your comment about the rack being upside down I remembered your pictures :( It looks much better standing the right way. I sometimes wonder how I put anything together without instructions.

Big Hugs,

Dark Squirrel Victoria said...

And Thank you again for the special package Ewa! I Love everything!!!

The Old Maid said...

Victoria I think it is great idea to put it up side down - actually it gave me the idea of new drier.:D

I believe your May girl is waiting for the washing to get dry... Okay, okay, very bad joke... teehee - but I had to give in. But now without kidding - she's beautiful although I have to confess I expected someone more of our times. Very well done, you always amaze me - you and your glue! And that drier is spectacular, I've already admired it on Victoria's blog - she was very lucky to get those gorgeous gifts from you.

"Majowa dziewczyna" do tej pory kojarzyła mi się troszkę inaczej, ale czy to ważne ile mai mamy za sobą?:)

CWPoppets said...

I like her costume and her very expressive face. And the rack is just wonderful.

The Old Maid said...

Happy you like her, Brigit! I was sure no one would think she will look like that.;D A bit of fun for me.:)
Thank you so much!
Hugs and kisses

The Old Maid said...

No wiem, Magdo, do tej pory dziewczyna była młodymi dziewczynami. Ale to też dziewczyna, tyle, że troszkę starsza.;D

The Old Maid said...

Thank you soooo much Christine!!! happy you like her and the rack!:)

Giac said...

I adore her. She is so detailed and very charming. The clothes are perfect and hang very realistically. I 've read many articles about miniaturists who work with fabric, and I'd say 90% of them use glue because stitching just doesn't transfer well in miniature. The clothes rack is beautiful anb a very loely gesture .

The Old Maid said...

Thank you very much, Giac! Happy you like them both!
It is good to know about so many people using glue for fabrics!Thank you for sharing it with me.:)

Fabiola said...

Your May girl is adorable.
Victoria is very lucky to have won this beautiful gift.
Bye Faby

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Faby! Happy you like my Girl.;D

I love the doll. She looks in peace with the world.

I love your doll. She just seats there, at peace with the world, inspiring tranquility.
The drying rack is stunning. I know Victoria is happy. I already saw it in her blog and congratulated her.
Hugs, Drora

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Drora!:) Happy you like them too!
