"My recycled wool animals rock!", Glass Tortoise
"Meet Lola, the lamb and Virgina and Henry Kitty Kat. They have all been reborn from recycled wool sweaters that were destined for the rag bag. I got into felting wool sweaters about 3 years ago along with needle felting. After making sweaters for three of my grandchildren, I began making them for my websites - GlassTortoise.etsy.com and GlassTortoise.artfire.com. I then started making stuffed animals and bags and anything else that my mind and hands take me to. I also love working with glass so it's always a debate about which I'm going to work on. I think I need a clone of myself so that I can do both at the same time."
