SLOW AND STEADY wins the race

I’m a big fan of handmade soft toys, and todays find made me almost fall out of my chair. Terry the Tortoise, from Hel Made, is self proclaimed as being the fastest tortoise in the UK. I do wonder how he would do against my one eyed walrus in his home turf. Its a battle of the sea creatures! Terry definitely will win in the uniqueness category, his shell is intricately made with layers of hexagons that demand attention. But my walrus might win a sympathy vote, due to his eye-loss from doing battle with the great corgi Einstein

    Hi Peppersprouts,

    Thank you very much for featuring Terry on your blog!

    I love the piece you’ve wrote about him and your one eyed walrus. I’m going to try him on your blog to check out the running competition.

    Thanks again! Have a great Christmas.
