Last Slice of Summer

Today's the last day of summer and I hope everyone had a great season.  It's strangely grey outside in NYC but I'm thinking back over the last few months and these Citrus Coasters I made from the Purl bee.
Here's the process going backwards.  
I still want to make them in all of the summery colors.
So simple and so cheerful. 

I have the pink grapefruit at work to brighten my desk.
It was finished in the car 
on the way to Philly for a weekend getaway.
It was easier to do the pinning at home first
and most of the cutting too.
The spring felt bundle from Purl Soho has all these great colors.
Thanks, summer...
I think I'm ready to welcome autumn tomorrow.
