September nature table/playscape

It's almost October and I realised I haven't posted our September nature table.  For this month I decided to do something different and make a needle felted playscape for the nature table.
So here it is. 
 All of the woodland creatures who live in the tree stump can move in and out of holes and up the little staircase.
 When I finally finished it and put it on the table L looked at it in awe and asked "can I play with it?"
It was a nice feeling to be able to say yes!
I'm contemplating selling some of my needle felting but I'm not sure if there would be a market for it?
Oh also if you like this sort of thing then check out this link to see some amazing nature tables and playscapes!

How much would you sell that play set for? I would love one for Bear for Christmas! Did it take a long time to make. I want to learn but it looks challenging.

Oh this is stunning....I wanted to purchase some things like this for my daughter but they were ever so expensive....granted I can see why but still it makes it difficult when you are weighing up purchases.....beautiful though and I would love one!!

Wow, you really went to town on that! It's gorgeous! Wish I was so talented... How long did it take, I would love to be able to do just a little toadstool like that...

Your amazing! How do you do this? I tried needle felting, but ended up with three dolls with wobbly heads and whose hands fall off! LOL.

i reckon you could have a market! You could just try a few different things and see if it takes off. Then, if not L has lots of lovely things and if it does, then business woman of the year here we come!

That is beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for sharing. I love that I am not the only one who thinks the Montessori and Waldorf approaches both have a lot to offer!

I would so LOVE it if you'd do a tutorial on how you made this! I went out today and purchase all sorts of stuff hoping to make one half as beautiful for my 5 year old for her birthday 12/5, how long did it take you to make yours? momstumpf@hotmail.com
