Seasonal Drinks "Winter" & "Spring" Coasters

Here are two more sets for my Seasonal Drinks coasters collection, Winter and Spring.

I borrowed inspiration from google images of  winter colours and spring colours. I could have used other colours than I did of course, but I looked at what I had and went with that. These winter colours are not of a typical Australian winter, but include lots of white for snow. We do get snow in Australia, but only in certain parts and not where I have ever lived in my life! The winter set also has some green for the evergreen trees and royal blue, which represents the long hours of twilight.

Spring is bright and cheery with mostly yellow, and some light blue and green. The blue represents the clear blue skies we got here early this spring, with green to stand for new growth. Yellow is for the new spring flowers and sunlight starting to warm things up. Choose darker coloured coasters when drinking red wine.

I now have made seven sets of coasters, I might have enough to give as gifts to various people. But then again, I might make just one more set …
