I also had two pieces in a series to which I'm still adding.  It's called Meditation Solitaire and it's based on the idea of the tabletop Zen garden. Instead of arranging sand and stones, one arranges a variety of shapes (spheres, circles, discs, strands) of felted fiber on a knitted mat. I include a lidded felted vessel to store the pieces in, and the vessel and lid itself can become part of the changing landscape one designs.  Kids loved this and quite a few adults found it soothing and fun.  I only have a picture of one of these right now, but as I make more I will post them.
