Pair of crocheted corsages!

Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy! Pair of quick to crochet corsages! We learned the techniques and stitches for this on the recent beginners learn to crochet workshop, and here are two I've made up since!

The observant of you will spot that I've not yet stitched them down or added the brooch back, but that aside they are done!

This project was good for the fact that I can now do a dc, htr and a tr and double yarn round the hook drag it twice thingie stitch without having to look it up in the book!! oh! and a sl st which took me best part of both corsages before I "got" this useful stitch!! (what I was actually doing was in fact a "dc" but I felt if I closed my eyes and did it quickly it could qualify AS a sl st! but I resolved to learning it properly!).

The challenging question NOW is where to FIRST stick my hook when completed the required turning chains! a colleague and I puzzled over this for a good 10mins ..
