  1. Found this when I couldn't sleep.reading your blog made me smile and crocheting a Pinwheel flower at 2 am is just what I needed to distract me from the horrible pain I am living with.my flower is bright yellow because it's a smiley colour,like daffodils and Spring time,and it's also my 4 yr old little grandsons favourite colour and he will b so excited by it later today. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all hold on to that world of childhood when even a yellow button,a yellow piece of ribbon or a pretty yellow pinwheel flower can make the day perfect?his smile will b enough to make my day perfect.
    Thank you for this lovely pattern Zelma.xx
