SO- I've been so busy swapping I haven't posted in this thread forever!
I was pretty proud of this creation though, so I thought I'd post it. It's a little forest friends diorama, complete with little knitted mushrooms and flowers.

I love all the detailing. Especially the stripe down the skunk's back. They're cute.

 That is so cute.  I love all the details.  Exactly how big are the flowers and mushrooms?  They look so teeny!  Good job.

Those are seriously good and I love the way you've displayed them. I'm a librarian and I'm thinking of knitting some finger puppets for storytimes and especially our baby bounce and rhyme times (action songs, nursery rhymes...you get the picture). I'd particularly like to do  5 frogs to accompany the song 5 little speckled frogs. I don't think that mine will match up to yours those are superb!

Thanks!
They're based on this basic pattern:

You should definitely give them a try!
The mushrooms and flowers are pretty small- like a couple cm.
