My First Free Pattern

I have always wanted to start designing and this one is the first I have posted on here. I have it transferred to a PDF file but I have no idea how to post the pattern on my blog. If anyone can help, please contact me. This has been stitched on an olive green evenweave with DMC floss in several different stitches. I have it patterned that you can do this in one color or pick several colors you like. Around the outside there is twisted braid which was attached with the matching straight pins and then tied into a bow. The bottom of the pincushion is a matching pink cotton fabric or you can do another piece out of the same linen with just the outside backstitching and finish it the way you would a biscornu. The button in the center is a covered button with the same fabric as the bottom.
So please, if you can help me post the PDF file, contact me. I think I have come up with a temporary solution of posting this pattern. Here is a link to a server who has made the pattern into a pdf document and you are able to print from there. Please bear with me while I learn all these things any normal person knows how to do. LOL
As always, Barbara

Thank you ladies!!! If and when you stitch it, please send me an email of it to me. I would love to see what others do with it.

OMGosh! I'm totally in awe, although I don't know why. Everything you stitch, finish and design is always awesome. I'm hoping this will be the first of MANY of your designs. I can't wait to get home and print it out. No printer here. :( Hugs, my friend!
