This is a class I took at The YMCA in Doylestown, with Cassandra Gunkel on felting in a different way, felting wool fabric on wool fabric, you have to work it more of course, and adding all sorts of materials.  The task was to represent a memory from when you were a kid.  It is a scene of Christmas when I was just one and a half years, where Tomten came to the house with presents, and Lena ,my sister dressed like a Lucia, and I ,as a star girl, greeted him! It brought so many nice memories!!! Thank you Cassandra!

The photo is not so good, sorry!
