Long Winter Nights

Coal Pits Wash, Zion National Park

I struggle with what to do with myself during the long winter nights.  It doesn't matter whether I am home or on the road.  5pm til 10am is a lot of time to kill, when only 8 of those hours is spent sleeping.
Two small paintings (sketches, 4x6"), and lots of patch sewing occupied some of this time while we were on the road in November.

I found some great buttons at an antique store in Hurricane, UT

Desert Vista

After returning home, all the patches were stitched together

And the handle was braided
