And today's winner is......

Today's random number is 40. The 40th person to leave a comment is Bonnie. Congrats Bonnie, you have won a skein of hand dyed tatting thread!

Remember...I still have one more drawing tomorrow so be sure to check back.


On another note, I just got back from Okinawa, Japan. We were there just a very short time. It was a free trip and we made the most of it. Here are just a few of the hundreds of pictures I took.








Also, while we were in Japan we finally got our next assignment...albeit 2 months late. I am now in a flurry of activity trying to get caught up with organizing this move.
I'll give you a few hints. It's an overseas assignment. We had no idea it was even an option for us. Even though we were not mentally prepared for this assignment we are very grateful and excited for it. Oh and finally...it's a snowboarders Mecca!

Oooh - I bet you going to love the new place (a snow-woman that you are).
Btw - what is the last picture? Is it a jelly fish?

Switzerland? If so, then it's a chocolate lover's Mecca, too!

Krystle said...

Oh fiddlesticks.

Congrats, Sherry and your DH, on getting the new assignment. I'm sure I'll be excited at the prospects too! Japan is a fascinating place, quite full of surprises.

The photos are fab, glad you had a great time...any sign of Brendan!!

What do you consider overseas..does that mean outside of America...trying to think where there might be a military base still. Can't think of anywhere cold!...Germany?? Greenland??

Oooh! I see some HDT inspiration here!

I don't know much about snowboarding, let alone a Mecca for snowboarding, but I think an assignment in Bavaria or Switzerland would be ideal. More hints tomorrow?

Hi Sherry, Great pictures! I see some new colors emerging from these pictures. LOL!!

Maybe you are going to Switzerland?????

Hope the move goes smoothly for you. When do you leave Japan? It must be hard to move after making all those wonderful friends. You will be leaving them with a wonderful gift, just from knowing you and spending time with you and leaving them with Tatting!

Have a great week!

Beautiful pics, Sherry! I especially love the jellyfish. We have some at the "LOCAL"(50 miles away) zoo, and they are so magical to watch!
Good luck with your new assignment!

The photos are lovely. I'm glad you got to make the trip. I don't know how I missed these posts. Maybe being sick AND on vacation? I'm glad you are excited about your mystery assignment. Though I really wanted you back "home."

Oh my goodness how did I miss this. Sherry, you are wonderful, thank you! This flower's colors would make for a beautiful HDT.
