New Weekly Challenge

So now the tag challenge is all finished over at UK Stampers, there is a new weekly challenge. Well MOST people have finished their tags, I still have to catch up, but I will and planned to this week until swine flu hit! Well after 4 days of doing nothing I am very bored but not terribly energetic so I decided to craft in the hope that it will make me tired so I can sleep tonight.
So the new challenge is to fill the 12 weeks (yes that's all it is!!!) until Christmas! It is on a 10x10 size base. I decided to go with fabric for this challenge. So I haven't stamped on this first one...hope that will be ok!!
The base is a piece of plain blue cotton, mounted on very stiff interfacing. I then cut random green leaves and stitched them on just along the spine of the leaf. The partridge was cut from felt first and then I applied two different fabrics onto that. I stitched feathers on top of that. Those very clever country sorts will spot they are pheasant and not partridge feathers!!!
The pear is a lightly padded scrap of slub silk, again mounted on felt. Then I stitched the whole lot together and there you go; a Partridge in a Pear Tree!
