Partridge in a Pear Tree



This tree was so fun to put together…I made the pears from a pattern from the Need’l Love Company by Renee Nanneman…I love her designs…crafty and classy, not to mention easy to execute.  The pears are made from yellow velveteen, stuffed with fiberfill, then I used blush (from my make-up drawer!) to create a rosy color, then added a little bit of mica for sparkle.










The partridge is a bird I found in a craft store…and it has sparked many conversations as to what really IS a partridge, and what does one look like?  Pat Hahndorf gave me another bird a few years ago which I think is more partridge-y however this one is glued so well to the nest, which is glued securely to the tree, I cannot removed it without destroying it!  At some point I will swap it out…but the technique and the desire to fix it has to happen at the exact time so I can act on it!

  1. Hello Sue,

    I knew I was in the right place – needlework AND Christmas!

    Your 12 Days of Christmas sampler with needlework tools intrigued me because I’m fascinated by needlework tools. I popped into your blog on the way to your site, and by the time I reached the Partridge & Pear tree photos I simply had to say Hi .

    If you get a chance, have a look at my Peacock tree/centrepiece with needlework tools.

    I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for sharing your lovely Christmas photos,
