Pinwheel Afghan!

I have had this friend my whole life. We went to school together, travelled Europe together, and graduated from high school the same year. I was hoping that we would go to university together, but instead, she decided to participate in a year-long service trip to South Korea. A whole year apart. At first I missed seeing her all the time, but we both got used to it. She came home last week. As a welcome home/ birthday gift for her I made her an afghan.
