Sweet Sue's Pincushion

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Sweet Sue asking me to check out a crocheted pincushion pattern that she had found.  Well of course I did being me.  I really liked how this pincushion was crocheted and put together and I wanted to give it a try so I told Sue that if I finished it, she could have it.  Well here it is in all it's glory.......
I crocheted it in a sock weight wool where as the pattern called for a pearl cotton and I think that was my first mistake.  She doesn't say how large it was suppose to turn out, but I think mine turned out a little too big.  The second thing I changed was a placed a beautiful pearlized button in the center.  I think it really needed something, I just wasn't sure what.  For anyone who is interested in maybe trying one themselves, you can see it here on Just Carol's blog and she has a link to the pattern.  If you do try it, let me know how yours turned out.....I'd really be interested.
Blessings as always,
Barbara
