I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas.

These pinwheels remind me of the old fashioned, dating from 1700's, Dutch polder water mills, especially because you used the Dutch fabric scraps :>)
My father's great-grandfather was a mill-builder/constructor; so, he was a real Dutch craftsman you can say.

Groetjes!

Hope I can make it to the last of the 365 days :>)

Groetjes,

Jeanneke.
