Motif #10 - Partridge in a Pear

Moving right along with the 25 Motif Challenge, I am already at motif #10, which I am very happy about, since I only joined the challenge on March 4, 2008. Here I have tatted Pam Palmer's Partridge in a Pear again. I tatted this one last year for a Secret Santa Exchange that I was in and posted about it earlier and can be seen on the post for February 6, 2008. My exchage partner was Jane Eborall, so she has the first one I tatted, which was tatted in all white. But I did this one a little different and tatted the pear in a beautiful golden color, which was made by Marilee (Yarnplayer), the color is called Golden Fleece, which you can get in her Etsy Shop. The Partridge is still in white. I used a pearl colored piece of heavy scrapbook paper and a piece of gold paper and used a fancy punch in the corners. I really like how this one looks with the golden pear.



Now I am thinking of what I will tat next. So many things I want to work on. I think I will tat a bookmark so I can use more of the HDT that I got from Marilee. I bought some of the beautiful color Nectarine. I think a floral bookmark would look nice in this color. I recently saw a floral bookmark that would look great with this thread. Now I can't remember where I saw it. Someone tatted about 8 of these bookmarks all in HDT's. I think the pattern might have been Kersti's, but I'm not sure. If anyone knows this bookmark, and knows where the pattern is, please let me know.

Your partridge in a pear turned out really nice. You did a great job of framing it.

I believe you're thinking about Sapna's bookmarks at her Sapztat blog (she's on the Tatted Ring of Bloggers. They are from Kirsti's website (http://www.kirsti.com), but I've been unable to get to the site for a while.

The pear is lovely in that thread and the partridge looks so crisp in white.
The bookmarks were made by Sapna and the pattern is Kersti's her site has been down.

I have also tatted that pattern. Unfortunately, the Kersti's site is down for the past few weeks. Her bookmarks are awesome.

Love that gold thread. Gives the picture a whole new dimension. Mind, I love my partridge picture best of all.

Your partridge in a pear is beautiful! The HDT really makes the design special.

I think I know the floral bookmark you're talking about, and it is a design from Kersti's web site. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to connect with the site. I would also like to use some of my HDT to make some of those lovely floral bookmarks!

Thank you Tattingchic! I am pleased with the results.

Hi Jane, I can't choose which I like better. I like both pictures. The thread Marilee made, Golden Fleece, was the perfect pear color.

Thank you everyone who answered me on where to find the floral bookmark! I was just at someones blog and saw this pretty bookmark, but couldn't find it again. I have tried to access Kersti site, but have had no luck. Guess I'll just have to keep trying.

The contrasting gold is very effective, Carol. Good Job!
