Not just for Spinners – Tokyo Spinning Party!

Friends and I visited the Tokyo Spinning Party on Monday. A show full of fleeces, silks, spindles, batts, workshops, and lots of other colorful yarn-y goodness.

I picked up a few things that might work for my Tropical Butterfly Garden art installation:

A bit of sparkly blue to use in  combination with another yarn to create a great look for the Ulysses Butterflies.
