Kathy Tayon from Crossville, TN "This is Tillie, who spent the entire season in our garden here in the Cumberland Mountains. I made her my size so she could wear my clothes. Her eyes, nose and lips are quilted. "We don't know if she scares any birds away, but our garden is doing well, we've seen a lot of neighbors wave as they go by, and I confess I've been caught talking to her."
