Welcome New Subscribers! 
One year ago tomorrow, my daughter emailed me about a fantastic deal on plane tickets to Tokyo, Japan. We had never been to Asia and were intrigued by the possibility.
We talked it over and mentioned the deal to other family members. In the end, five of us were able to go to Japan and come back with wonderful memories.  
Today's archive post is the story of how we found the tickets and decided to take the trip. Over the next three weeks, the archive posts will tell about our adventure. I'm glad to be able to share these memories with you.   
For every trip I've been on, I come back with treasured memories. Thankfully, I never run out of room for more of these travel memories.  
This weekend, take some time to reminisce about travels you've been on.  How will you add to your memories?
I hope you enjoy reading the posts this week and over the next few weeks. Share the newsletter with your family and friends! If you are reading your friend's newsletter, you can sign up for your own here.

“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.”

Amsterdam's Yarn and Fabric Shops

Last fall, I was able to spend a couple of days in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I spent the first of my two days exploring the city with friends from the eastern part of the country. The second day I visited as many yarn and fabric shops as I could squeeze into the day.

My friend, Greet, and her husband, raise sheep on their farm in Eibergen, Netherlands. Although their breed of sheep is mostly used for meat, Greet has been experimenting with spinning the fleece and dyeing the yarn.

Her latest projects involve using Koolaid to dye the yarn. She was having a hard time finding the drink mix in the Netherlands, so she asked me to help her out. I brought her about 200 packages of Koolaid and traded for several skeins of her yarn – what a great deal!

Want to Go to Japan?

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to purchase one of the super discount fares that I’ve seen advertised – the kind where if you don’t jump on it, it may be gone. Well, now I know.

Around noon on Friday, my daughter sent me a link to a discount fare she had discovered.  “Want to go to Japan for a long weekend?” she asked.  I laughed as I read the email to my husband.

“You should go,” he said, surprising me...
