Instant Gratification

I wanted to crochet something fast and easy today.  I let my mind wander and worked without a pattern.  Here it is.

I also learned how to "block" a project.  I have these other black and white flower coasters that always curl up.  Finally I decided to give the method a try and what do you know....all the flower petals are firmly flat on the table.  

"Blocking" is just basically spraying the project with starch and ironing it flat with a thin towel placed on top to keep it from sticking/burning.  Works like a champ!
