The question "Does it work?" doesn't matter, I'm just wondering if this combination makes sense and if the sentences / definitions above fit this combination "Thread Pinwheel".
    Thanks.
    If you search the Internet for "thread pinwheel" (use the quotation marks), you will find that that name is used for pinwheels that are sewn, as for a quilt.

    Some people apparently call the seeds that fall from maple trees "whirligigs." I've always known them as "helicopters."
