Mods: None unless you consider shorter and less beads as a mod.  I bought 3 tubes of beads and ran out so I stopped.  It was 5″ tall.

Facts to Remember:  When beading with a crochet hook, don’t hold the hook in your mouth with a bead attached, because the bead just might go down your throat.  I lost two or three that way.  You think I would learn my lesson but of course not.  Also don’t doubt your gauge unless you are on vacation, my gauge changed while I was on vacation.  This was done after vacation so I should have gone with the US 7 needle, so this turned out a little bigger than written.

Things I Love: How easy it was and that my friend Nina (ravelry) gifted me this pattern.  I didn’t expect that kind of generosity nor do I expect it again, but it was nice.  It made me feel special.  The beading was super easy with 0/5 E beads and a tiny crochet hook.
