Monday Morning Somewhere

Good morning, hope you all had a great weekend - I had a very great time.

As usual, we walked / hiked in the mountains Friday. Lake Louise to be more precise. Since I have been away for some time we are slowly working up to a real hike. On Friday we walked around the lake. At the start of the walk the snow was falling. We were walking into large fluffy flakes over a rather rough path. (We shared the path with a horse drawn sled so smooth the path was not.) By the turn around point the snow had stopped falling and the sun came out - so beautiful to see at least a hint of mountains. By the time we retuned it was lunch time so we indulged at the chateau. Such a treat!

Saturday was uneventful - worked on some jewellery, finished some more ----

Sunday was time for another walk (in town this time) --- we walked along the Bow River and got an up close look at some of the damage from last June's floods. There were points along the path that you could tell the water from the river (now many feet below us) would have been over our heads during the peak of the river flow - large expanses of the bank are gone - it will be interesting to see what the new version of the pathway looks like.

Sorry but the camera was left at home during these walks.... I will do better next time....

I have one necklace that I am very pleased with from my work this weekend. I posted it to Facebook but I thought I would share it here as well. Most of my other work was for challenges so they will be shared in due time.)

This piece was inspired during a class I took from Susan Lenart Kazmer during a retreat at Hacienda Mosiaco in Puerto Vallarta. My tablemate Susan Bolding was also instrumental in its development. Various gauges and lengths of wire went into this prototype. Circles have always played a part in my work and this piece says so much to me. I am already working on another incarnation.



  1. Sounds like an invigorating walk! Gorgeous necklace friend! What a creative use of material!!!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. I do enjoy my Friday walks.

  2. Interesting design, Judy... looks like you incorporated some headpins?

    1. Thanks - they are just hammered wire that has had the ends balled.
