I'd like you to meet "Tillie."
I formed the foundation of her skirt by creating a tagboard cone that I glued onto a clothespin... not the snap kind but the other variety. After gluing fabric onto the tagboard cone, I wrapped fabric around the upper part of the clothespin for the dress's bodice then wrapped fabric around a pipe cleaner that I had attached to the clothespin. I finished her except for the head. Today, for one strand of my "4 Cs"... craft, I finished my project by painting her hair, eyes, and mouth on a wooden ball and my "Tillie" was brought to life. Because she's happier in her garden tending her veggies, herbs, and flower beds than fussing with her hair, I wrapped a scarf around her head and slipped her into a pair of rubber gardening boots made from modeling clay.
Besides crafting, how'd I do with the other 3 strands of my "4 Cs" productive stay-at-home day today? I cleaned the fridge. Clerical... I paid one bill. (I had to type a letter to go along with my check so it took a bit longer than normal.) Cook... Dick and I went out to lunch with our friends, Ron and Sue, so the chefs at Olive Garden cooked today.
